Freeway Service Patrol Program

Freeway Service Patrol 2013

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 car, debris on the road, or a minor accident, the objective of the FSP and IRV is to remove it 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, emergency medicial services and towing and recovery professionals to rapidly and safely address more complex traffic incidents.

Emergency Contact Information
To best 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.
Non-emergency Contact Information

Additional information is available by calling (775) 888-7000. Or, you can provide feedback on the Freeway Service Patrol by e-mailing us at ndotfsp@dot.state.nv.us.
