A number of field resources are used on the road, ready to provide support as incidents occur. They protect an incident scene until police and/or other necessary emergency services arrive, minimise risk to others, manage traffic and provide assistance to other agencies requiring access to the site.
Their primary role is to manage traffic around incidents, return roads to normal operating conditions and assist in clearing incidents and repairing roads.
Traffic Emergency Patrols (TEP Crews)
There are fully equipped, road based crews in key locations across Sydney and a dedicated team in the Hunter region. They provide support to emergency services and motorists, help maintain traffic flow by setting up traffic controls and assist in clearing incidents and repairing roads.
