LTAP stands for the Local Technical Assistance Program. This program is administered through PennDOT and the Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors.
LTAP offers training classes to municipalities at no charge. As Fire Police we are municipal workers. Most classes are 1/2 to one day, at the site of your choice.
Some of the programs are a great benefit to Fire Police, including:
Work Zones (Temporary Traffic Control);
Engineering & Traffic Studies;
Equipment & Worker Safety;
Risk Management Strategies; and
Safe Driver .
A new one - 2018 - is Roadway Safety Audits - this program opens your eyes to safety issues that are extremely beneficial - and overlooked - at most emergency scenes...
This is a link to the LTAP website. Go to their site, and since Fire Police are municipal workers, we're eligible to take the classes. We recommend Work Zone Traffic Control, Traffic Signs, Liability, and others.
Once you go to a class or two, spread the word, will ya?
