Planning Begins Today for the 2024 Crash Responder Safety Week

Crash Responder Safety Week (CRSW) takes place November 18–22, 2024. This FHWA-sponsored initiative communicates the simple steps everyone may take to keep roadway responders and the public safe around traffic incidents. Encourage your agency’s TIM champion and public information officers to attend the CRSW All States Planning webinar today, July 10, 2024, at 3 p.m. ET. The webinar will feature how organizations and individuals secure and use CRSW proclamations, mass media, and public events to promote TIM and responder safety.

Additionally, save the date for the National Kickoff webinar for CRSW—November 18, 2024, at 1 p.m. ET. And, while the FHWA CRSW and National Operations Center of Excellence (NOCOE) CRSW web pages have yet to be refreshed for 2024, there are many relevant resources on both sites to help your organization plan for CRSW2024.
