Highway Incident Scene Safety & Management (HSTC)

Class Description

The primary target audiences for this course are fire offcers, firefighters, fire police, rescue, EMS and law enforcement personnel who command, respond to or work at highway incidents. Students will learn how to adapt the same safety and traffic control principles used to establish work zones in the highway construction and maintenance industries. They will be shown ways of applying these principles, using limited equipment and staffing, to enhance safety at emergency incidents on streets and highways. Topics covered include scene assessment, risk management, regulatory issues of temporary traffic control, necessary equipment, flagging, and personnel safety procedures. Practical exercises are included that let students apply what they have learned to “real world” incident scenarios.
