The area covered by this document is generally associated with the limited access highways in Montgomery County, PA, along I-76, I-476, PA 309, and US 422. The purpose of this document is to provide incident responders with uniform operational guidelines for safe operations at the scene of a highway incident. These operational guidelines are the result of the solicitation of input from all stakeholders that may operate at one of these incidents. It is intended that this document serve as a guideline for decision-making and can be modified by the incident responders as necessary to address existing conditions. Managing a highway incident and any related problem is a team effort. Each responding agency has an important role to play in the management of an effective incident operation. It is not a question of "who is in charge" but "who is in charge of what". Each agency present has a part to play with the goals of: responder safety; safe, quick clearance; and, to restore the highway to its pre-incident condition. Publication No.: 08002.
