The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT), the South Carolina Department of Public Safety (SCDPS) and the Federal Highway Administration are offering a free training course for South Carolina first responders interested in learning traffic collision management techniques.
Media members are invited to attend the training course Oct. 1 between 8 a.m. and noon at the SC Fire Academy, 141 Monticello Road, Columbia.
SCDOT's Mike Bowman can conduct interviews on any of the subjects that will be covered. In addition, he has information about how fast a crash can create traffic back-ups measured in minutes and miles as well as other cause for delay that drivers experience when caught in a traffic tie-up due to a crash. The intent is to provide training in clearing highway incidents faster and more safely for all agencies and services that respond to highway crashes.
