The Trauma Intervention Program (TIP) of Southern Nevada, Inc. is a non-profit 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 directly on-scene, during the investigation.
TIP volunteers are available 24/7, including holidays. Volunteers are called by authorized police officers, firefighters, paramedics and hospital personnel to assist:
-Family members and friends following a natural or unexpected death (suicide, drowning, etc.)
-Victims of crime including sexual assault, robbery, burglary and domestic violence.
-Victims of crime.
-Persons involved in vehicle accidents.
-Persons who are distraught and seeking immediate support.
