TIP Volunteers and Portland Fire & Rescue Chiefs and Firefighters from Station 9

The Trauma Intervention Program of Portland/Vancouver, Inc. (TIP) held their 5th annual Dispatcher/Debriefer Holiday Breakfast last weekend at the Bread and Ink Café in SE Portland. TIP volunteers made the most of their time socializing and reflecting on their volunteer efforts and accomplishments.

Portland Fire & Rescue Lieutenant Shane and Firefighters Joseph, Chris, and Matthew from Fire Station 9 took part in the festivities by delivering the best sort of holiday cheer to the breakfast - Santa Claus!

The breakfast honored specially trained TIP citizen volunteers who coordinate and provide assistance and support not only to victims and their family and friends immediately after a traumatic incident or sudden loss, but also to other TIP volunteers after an incident occurs. TIP volunteers are requested by and work with local police, fire, and emergency medical crews.

Each day, emergency responders in our area like Portland Fire & Rescue call for a TIP volunteer to show up on-scene and support those who are emotionally wounded.  TIP has been in the Portland area for over 17 years and works closely with local communities to establish emergency services volunteer programs that are staffed with well-trained citizen volunteers.  TIP volunteers provide support services on a 24-hour, 365-day basis.  TIP of Portland/Vancouver responded to 2,007 calls in 2009 and served 12,214 citizens in our area.
