How to Initiate a TRIP Call • ODOT Statewide TMC will be the point of contact for TRIP. • TMC may be notified of a potential TRIP situation by ODOT, FSP, law enforcement, and/or fire/emergency. • If there is an agreement that the incident qualifies, the TMC will notify the contractor and record the time of notification.
Incentive Payment • ODOT agrees to grant an incentive payment to the prequalified towing contractor if the clearance activity meets the following two requirements: • The contractor shall arrive on scene no more than 45 minutes from being called by the TMC from the hours of 5:30 AM to 7:00 PM Monday-Friday. No more than 60 minutes from initial contact at any other time. • The contractor shall complete clearance activities no more than 90 minutes from being given the go-ahead by the incident commander. • $2500 or $600 show up fee
Extenuating Circumstances • At any time the Incident Commander may direct the Company to stop clearance activities due to extenuating circumstances (HazMat, etc). • When the direction to stop is given by the Incident Commander, the Company shall inform the ODOT TMC. • The “90 minute Clock” will be paused. • When the direction to proceed with road clearance activity is issued, the Company shall inform the ODOT TMC. • The “90 minute Clock” will begin again from where it was paused. • These timestamps must be recorded and verified by the Incident Commander (can be done after the incident).
