State police say a new statewide training system will get roads reopened more quickly following accidents.

The Advocate reports the Traffic Incident Management system developed by the Federal Highway Administration is already in place in 33 states.

The system aims to make sure all first responders — police, fire, medical and even wrecker services — have the same training and information when arriving at an accident scene to streamline the process and reopen roads more quickly.

State Fire Marshal Butch Browning said the ever-evolving role of a first responder and the people who are considered first responders make this type of program critical to public safety.
