Integrating TMCs and PSAPs to Improve Incident Response

Sponsored by the USDOT, Joint Program Office, Transportation Safety Advancement Group.

Webinar Description:
Traffic or transportation management centers (TMCs) are the heart of operations for most transportation agencies. They monitor and evaluate conditions on the transportation system through cameras, detectors, and other instrumentation, and they operate the system through traffic control and information distribution. Public safety answering points (PSAPs) are the communication centers for public safety response agencies, receiving 911 calls, dispatching responders and resources, and monitoring incident communications. They each use communication and data systems that are rarely integrated to share data and enhance agency efficiency and response effectiveness. This webinar looks at the opportunities for integrating TMCs and PSAPs, examples of integration initiatives in Minnesota and at the U.S. Canadian border in New York, and some of the benefits and challenges of integration.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the types and levels of TMC-PSAP integration
  • Identify benefits and challenges of integration
  • Look at examples of center-to-center integration
  • Explore additional research needs
