Participate in Crash Responder Safety Week (CRSW), Nov 8-14, 2021

Posted: Nov. 6, 2021

Every day, first responders, including law enforcement professionals, across the country put their lives at risk while working to clear roadway crashes, debris, and other incidents that put all road users at risk. Traffic incident responders deserve training on how to stay safe while working on roadways. And motorists should be made aware of Move Over laws intended to keep traffic incident responders safe. 

So, make plans to observe CRSW this November 8-14, 2021, formerly known as National Traffic Incident Response Awareness Week (NTIRAW). CRSW is our opportunity to make a difference individually and collectively for roadway safety surrounding traffic incidents –by teaching each other and the motoring public about our common goal and responsibility for safe, quick clearance of roadway incidents.

We invite law enforcement professionals to register and attend the National CRSW Kickoff webinar, November 8, 1:00 – 3:00 PM ET. Additionally, the Federal Highway Administration has gathered helpful resources to make it as easy as possible for every traffic incident responder and response organization to observe CRSW —whether through tweets, training, or Slow Down Move Over enforcement efforts. These resources are on the FHWA CRSW site. Also, please share the attached Crash Responder Safety Week flyer with your peers.
