Welcome Shane Coleman to ERSCA

The Emergency Road Service Coalition of America is excited to welcome Shane Coleman to our staff. Shane will lead ERSCA’s training department. ERSCA President Sherry White states. “It is an honor to be able to work with Shane. His experience and his training techniques are unparalleled in this industry. I speak for all of our board members when I say welcome Shane, we are excited to take ERSCA’s training to the next level!”
Shane Coleman is a 2nd generation towing professional with over 33 years in the Towing and Recovery industry. Having started in a family business in the suburban Detroit area in Michigan, his experience with private and municipal towing has been extensive. While in the family business, he served the communities with over 92,000 hours of service as an operator.
Most recent, was his tenure as product specialist, product manager and product trainer with a major manufacturer. These positions spanned the last 9 years and led him to creating initiatives for sales and product development. He credits his family business experience, his passion for equipment and working closely with his father in the design and building of their own equipment bodies giving him the experience to see what is needed in today’s industry. Shane’s experience with knowing the proper specifications needed to optimize fleet management also motivated him to develop truck specifications and processes that were not only operator minded, but also business owner focused to optimize their investment. Training is one of Shane’s strongest passions. His experience started with training employees at the family business. He developed a strong sense of the need for more training to establish a career for people in the towing industry. In 1995, his training career was initiated as a field trainer at the age 24. Since then, he has held varied training positions within towing companies, manufacture organizations and is an active training consultant.
Today, his off time is spent with his family in his hometown in Troy, Michigan. He is a prolific reader and when he can he takes in a motorcycle ride, or gets in some target sports. “I live a life of service, for my family first, and the towing industry, there’s not too much space between the two.”

    I work for the Michigan Department of Transportation in Traffic Incident Management (TIM). Also, I am the statewide coordinator for the National TIM Responder Training Program which in Michigan we have branded Mi-TIME (Michigan Traffic Incident Management Effort). To date, we have trained almost 9000 Michigan responders in TIM. I am looking for opportunities to develop relationships with towing agencies and provide this free TIM training to towing professionals. I would like to learn more about ERSCA and how we might join efforts to improve safety for towing professionals and all first responders. Please contact me at 517-242-3610 or millerd2@michigan.gov to discuss. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Thank you,
