    20. 20. HERO SUCCESS<br />HUGE public relations boost.<br />DOT personnel, local and state police, wrecker and fire departments worked extremely well together. Everyone went the extra mile.<br />Relieved the District personnel of maintaining traffic on the interstate. This allowed District forces to be redirected.<br />Provided accurate and up to date traffic and weather conditions.<br />Provided information on problem road conditions (flooding, signs down, etc.).<br />HERO equipment and operations allowed incidents to be cleared faster and safer. Maintenance forces did not have to respond to many of the incidents on the interstates. <br />Assisted with evacuation and re-entry along interstates.<br />
