January 2022

Welcome to 2022!

New year, same mission: Advance the safety of responders nationwide through training and multi-discipline collaboration. With a reset frame of mind, we are hoping to ditch the scattered and virtual trainings and gear up for a calendar-filling, in-person year.

If you follow our Facebook page, you may have seen the challenge we issued. I am extending that challenge on to all of you; please consider doing at least one of the following:

  1. Engage with the Facebook so that we can build better content for you.
  2. Share your story.
  3. Share with at least five, non-responder, friends the importance of Move Over Slow Down and Crash Responder Awareness Week.
  4. Get your agency to invest in TIM. Example: join a TIM Team.
  5. Schedule a training.

If each of you did just one of the above items listed in 2022, TIM would improve not only in Oregon but nationwide.

Advancing the idea of TIM is important and directly affects the safety of our responders and response partners all across the nation.

Share these with us as you complete them at TIMtraining@odot.oregon.gov


2022 Goals

Winter Break

For Christmas this year, my family and I drove for two days from Oregon to Las Vegas for an unforgettable trip.        

Courtesy of an Incident Responder here in Oregon, once we arrived in Vegas I was able to redeem a ride-along opportunity with the Nevada-Las Vegas Freeway Service Patrol. It was fascinating to see while traveling amongst the traffic and flow of vehicles that they, too, experience many of the same safety challenges that we do here in Oregon; namely, drivers not slowing down or moving over, amongst other things.

By sharing our stories and messages, we can create echoes and spread the word from Oregon to many other states.

Advancing safety is not a one-person show; it takes a tribe, a TIM Tribe!
