Emergency crews say training helped them respond to I-39 crash


Some of the rescue workers who responded to the I-39 crash Tuesday say their training helped them respond.

"Ironically, we recently wrapped up training on January 6th at the Knowlton Town Hall about a mile from the crash scene. It was called Traffic Incident Management or TIM. What it does is set up a uniform response to crashes, who does what, from rescue work to directing traffic to clearing up the road," said Mosinee Fire District Chief Josh Klug.

On Wednesday Klug and other emergency responders took part in paramedic training sessions at the Northcentral Technical College branch in Merrill.

"You hope you don't have to use it. But you will and this allows you to be prepared," said Klug.
