Formerly National Traffic Incident Response Awareness Week
When: November 8-14, 2021
Crash Responder Safety Week (CRSW) is an opportunity to make a difference individually and jointly for roadway safety during traffic incidents by teaching each other and the motoring public about our common goal and responsibility for safe, quick clearance.
Public education and effective TIM practices that alert drivers and prepare them to react properly when encountering emergency scenes, including moving over and slowing down, keep motorists safe, reduce needless secondary crashes, and save lives. The goal of Crash Responder Awareness Week is to reach out to every emergency responder, every driver, and every passenger, to educate them in how to play their part in ensuring safe responses at roadway incident scenes. More details are available from the National Operations Center of Excellence. Use the hashtag #CRSW when posting on social media about your responder safety and TIM activities.
The Emergency Responder Safety Institute is an official partner and supporter of Crash Responder Safety Week.
