NFPA TRAFFIC CONTROL INCIDENT MANAGEMENT PROFESSIONAL QUALIFICATIONS COMMITTEE

The Chair, Steve Austin referred to the August 20, 2010 NFPA Standards Council letter creating the NFPA’s 1091 Traffic Control Incident Management Professional Qualifications Committee.

He further clarified: 

The Committee Scope: The Technical Committee (TC) shall have jurisdiction over documents that address professional qualifications for emergency responders in relation to their operations on roadways.

 

The Document Scope: The standard shall identify the minimum job performance requirements necessary to perform temporary traffic control duties at emergency incidents on, or near an active roadway.

 

The Chair acknowledged the diversity of the TC by way of fire service, fire police, law enforcement, highway transportation, traffic safety, fire service publications, Traffic Incident Management (TIM) related Consultant, and TIM Subject Matter Experts which translates into a very balanced multidisciplinary technical committee. Given the document scope, the TC acknowledged the expectation that the ultimate standards document be applicable in all disciplines to all TIM responders. It was agreed that “the documents would be for the basic TIM responder”.
