Workshop 1:

Nevada Traffic Incident Management (TIM) Responder Training Course

Tuesday, October 16, 8:00am – 12:00pm    |    Maximum Participants: 50

Rita Brohman, Parsons    |    Gary Sallee, NDOT

The Nevada TIM Training is built on the National TIM Responder Training Program, developed by responders for responders.  It was designed to establish the foundation for and promote consistent training of all responders to achieve the three objectives of the TIM National Unified Goal (NUG):

  • Responder Safety
  • Safe, Quick Clearance
  • Prompt, Reliable, Interoperable Communications

The four-hour TIM course is intended to provide first responders the knowledge and materials necessary for clearing critical incidents as quickly as possible to reduce secondary crashes. Scene safety, communication, and relationship building will be emphasized in a multi-agency training approach with highly-qualified instructors from multiple law enforcement agencies, fire agencies, Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT), towing, and private-sector emergency responders. The course structure will consist of four hours of training with credit for engineering and post-law.

This training is provided free of charge; however, agencies are responsible for all travel-related expenses. For more information, please view the course flier or contact Major (retired) Pat Gallagher or Rita Brohman.

Workshop 2:

Safety Program Grant Application Training

Program Development 101: How to Not Murder a Grant Application

Tuesday, October 16, 8:00am – 11:30am    |    Maximum Participants: 30

Pam Shadel Fischer, MLPA, CPST, Pam Fischer Consulting
You know the traffic safety problem, but how do you develop a grant-funded program to address it that doesn’t leave the reviewers begging for mercy? Discover how to find and interpret relevant data and use it to develop a clear and concise problem statement that supports an Office of Traffic Safety priority area. Explore the difference between a goal and objective, learn how to write specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time-based (SMART) objectives that link to evaluation and identify proven countermeasures that can help you achieve your program’s goals and objectives. You’ll also learn how objectives drive what is evaluated, the importance of establishing a baseline so you know where you’re starting from, and the need to strike a balance between assessing what you did (process) and what you accomplished (outcomes) when reporting program results.

Workshop 3:
