Freeway Service Patrol Program
The Nevada Department of Transportation
provides the Freeway Service Patrol (FSP) in the Las Vegas and Reno/Sparks
areas and also provides Incident Response Vehicles (IRV) in the Las Vegas
area. The purpose of these programs is to improve highway safety on the more
heavily traveled sections of our urban freeways by reducing the time required
to remove incidents (objects) that can disrupt traffic flows and cause traffic
congestion during peak travel periods. Whether it's a stalled vehicle, debris on
the road, or a minor accident, the objective of the FSP and IRV is to remove distractions
from the road as quickly as possible to avoid impacting passing drivers. FSP
and IRV technicians are certified in community first aid and Automotive Service
Excellence to ensure they are prepared to quickly remove minor incidents from
the roadway. The FSP also assists other public safety organizations including
law enforcement, fire, paramedics and towing and recovery
professionals to rapidly and safely address more complex traffic incidents.
respond to vital roadway incidents, the Freeway Service Patrol is
not available on-call, but will stop on their regular route to
provide needed assistance. Dial 911 for emergencies or dial *NHP
(*647) to report drunk drivers, traffic crashes, stranded or
disabled motorists, or any suspicious roadside incidents to the
Nevada Highway Patrol.
