The South East Florida Regional TMC Operations Committee (SEFRTOC) was formed in 2003 by the South Florida Regional ITS Coalition, an
organization that brings together municipal, county, regional and state agencies to ensure compatible implementation and operation of
Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) throughout the region.
To facilitate regional mobility in South East Florida through coordinated Transportation Management Center Operations.
To further the objectives of the South Florida Regional ITS
Coalition by leading initiatives related to day-to-day operations and to establish a regional approach to ITS operations and
incident management through coordinated communication, decision-making and planned resource sharing.

SEFRTOC members meet bi-monthly to facilitate open discussion, make decisions regarding day-to-day operations and develop
policies and procedures to maximize the utilization of ITS resources in South East Florida. Some of the regional topics of
discussion are as follows:
- Interagency Communication: A goal of the committee is to improve center-to-center communication and
assist one another when necessary during Incident Management activities. Note: Each agency's internal procedures for
notification schedule and DMS messaging procedures must be followed.
- Shared Resources: Dependent upon internal policy and resource availability, each agency agrees to help
identify and share resources during major incidents.
– Road Ranger Patrols
– Dynamic Message Signs (DMS)
– Highway Advisory Radio (HAR)
– Incident Response Vehicles
- DMS Messaging Structure: DMS messaging is based on two main criteria: structure and content of messaging
text. The committee agrees to develop and use consistent messaging that will allow quicker recognition by motorists. Structure
and content are based on what can be read by the lowest denominator, in this case, the motorist driving at the highest rate of speed.
– Standard Operating Guidelines
– New Meeting Minutes
- Criteria and Strategy: It is the strategy of the Committee to invite all South Florida ITS Coalition
Agency Members to participate in order to facilitate open discussion and develop policies and procedures to maximize the
utilization of ITS resources in South East Florida. All South Florida ITS Coalition Committee members who are currently
operating/or plan to deploy a Traffic Management Center are invited to participate in the committee.
- Performance Measures: Used to determine progress toward specific committee objectives enabling SEFRTOC
to set additional goals and standards, detect and correct problems, improve processes, and document accomplishments.
Performance will be measured based on information collected during the debriefing process. Types of Performance Measures
– Operations Review
– DMS Utilization
– Road Ranger Utilization
– Regional Affect Planned
- Hurricane Response Plan: The committee will continue to meet prior to potential hurricane threats to
discuss strategies, schedules, TMC assistance, and DMS and other ITS device usage, before, during and after the storm.
- Standard Operating Procedures: Developed to address and document all of the topics above and to assist
with meeting the objectives and mission of the committee. The guidelines are intended to clearly identify the partners and
partners’ resources and to specify the individual roles and responsibilities with regard to interagency communication,
DMS messaging structure, resource sharing, documentation, performance measurement and review process.
