StateFarmLogo.pngSAFETY PATROL

​The Ohio Department of Transportation offers this good samaritan program to assist stranded motorists on Ohio’s interstates. The purpose of the program is to help keep Ohio interstates safe, provide traffic control and medical assistance at crash sites, and offer limited roadside assistance if needed. Since the program began in 2001, the patrol has come to the aid of thousands of motorists.

In 2014, ODOT announced that State Farm Insurance will be the exclusive title sponsor of the State Farm Safety Patrol (previously known as the Freeway Incident Response Service Team (FIRST)). The collaborative partnership is designed to create a long-term, supplemental funding source for the program. Click here to learn more about the State Farm sponsorship of the patrol.



If you’ve driven on Ohio interstates, chances are you have seen the State Farm Safety Patrol at work. The State Farm Safety Patrol covers interstates, assists motorists, and keeps highways safe by performing the following services:

  • Changing flat tires
  • Fixing minor mechanical problems
  • Removing debris from the road at the scene of an accident
  • Providing minimal amounts of fuel
  • Providing emergency medical assistance

The State Farm Safety Patrol is an invaluable asset to numerous agencies including the Ohio State Police and local first responders in assisting with various emergencies on Ohio highways.
