Station 9 Firefighters Join TIP Volunteers to Honor & Celebrate 2010 Accomplishments


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.

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.
