This is good news! Five PA agencies are working together to make conditions safer for emergency responders and clear accident scenes faster on our state’s highways. As a result of efforts spearheaded by the PA Turnpike Commission, many of the state’s emergency responders have been trained to improve their ability to communicate and collaborate when working on highway accidents. As a way to formally address highway accident issues, the PennTIME program was formed. This program consists of the State Department of Health, PA State Police, PennDOT, the Turnpike Commission, and the state’s Emergency Management Organzation. This program will help organize efforts between police, firefighters, emergency medical personnel, and accident removal companies (like towing and hazardous materials organizations) to have one efficient, coordinated response.
