In October 2003, the State Transportation Strategy Board endorsed the Incident Management Task Force White Paper and in November of that year, established a permanent Statewide Incident Management Task Force to address traffic incident management issues. The Transportation Strategy Board was not funded under 2011 State budget, but the group continues to meet on an ad hoc basis.
In 2006, the SIMTF obtained the services of IBI Group of Boston to assist in the writing of a Unified Response Manual for use in responding to incidents on the State’s highways. The final draft was presented to and adopted by the TSB in July 2008.
A training program for the URM is being developed.
In addition, a report on the status of the various proposals in the White Paper was presented to the TSB in July 2008.
