Crash Responder Safety Week (CRSW)

November 13 -17, 2023 

Protect Those Who Protect You

Every minute of every day, fire and rescue, emergency medical services, law enforcement, public works, transportation, towing, and other responders work roadside to make roadways safe for all road users. These traffic incident responders put their lives at risk when clearing each of the nearly 7 million annual motor vehicle crashes and the broader range of roadway incidents such as stalled vehicles or roadway debris.

Slow Down, Move Over law, which requires drivers to slow down, and, if possible, to move over when approaching incident response vehicles such as ambulances, fire engines, tow trucks, safety service patrols, and municipal or utility vehicles.

As a road user, share on social media your appreciation for our traffic incident responders, and share stories of when a traffic incident responder came to your rescue, using #CRSW.
