The Trauma Intervention Program NW (TIP NW) of Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington held their First Annual Cruise In and Cook Out event on Saturday, June 12, 2010 at Portland Fire & Rescue’s Training Center located at 4800 NE 122nd Avenue in Portland, Oregon!


The event featured over 100 classic cars, all makes and models, competing for awards. Live music was provided by “The Touchables,” one of the best '60s pop culture bands in the area. The event also included raffle drawings and BBQ-style food cooked by members of the Portland Firefighters Association.   

The event raised close to $5,000

which will directly benefit the TIP NW program!

TIP is a national voluntary nonprofit organization dedicated to ensuring that those who are emotionally traumatized in emergency situations receive the assistance they need. To accomplish that goal, TIP works closely with local communities to establish emergency services volunteer programs. In these programs, well-trained citizen volunteers are called to emergency scenes to assist family members, witnesses, and other bystanders who the emergency system often must leave behind.

Interested in becoming a TIP Volunteer who would assist citizens in the Portland and Vancouver areas that are in crisis?  Click here for further information or visit the official TIP NW website at
