Sponsored by Standing Committee on Transportation Safety Management; Standing Committee on Emergency Evacuations; Subcommittee on Regional Traffic Incident Management; and Standing Committee on Traffic Law Enforcement

This workshop gives voice to the wide range of professionals who respond to emergencies of all kinds, such as crashes, severe weather, special events, and hazmat events. Lightening round presentations representing the many disciplines involved provide a forum to hear directly from the profession the issues, challenges, and opportunities needed to safely, efficiently, and effectively resolve emergency situations. The workshop also includes small group discussions to identify and prioritize common challenges.
