Posted: 2020-10-07 FIR255 Traffic Incident Management (PA version)
  The Northampton Community College has now added FIR255 Traffic Incident Management (PA version) to the active curriculum. This is a 4 hour course with no prerequisites and is also available as a "Local Level Course".
  This National TIM Responder Training Program establishes the foundation and promotes consistent training for all responders to incidents involving operations on or near a highway. The PA-TIM objectives primarily target operations and special risks to personnel performing fire, rescue and EMS functions. This program examines those risks and provides nationally recognized actions to minimize/reduce those risks.
