Mission Statement

The mission of the Trauma Intervention Program of NW Florida is to provide immediate, on-scene emotional aid and practical support to traumatized victims and victims' survivors in the first few hours following a traumatic event.

Description

The Trauma Intervention Program is a group of specially trained citizen volunteers who are called by first responders such as police, sheriff, fire and hospital personnel to assist family members and friends following a natural or unexpected death; victims of violent crime including rape, assault, robbery, or burglary; victims of fire; disoriented or lonely elderly persons; people involved in motor vehicle accidents; people who are distraught and seeking immediate support; and survivors of suicide. TIP volunteers are available 24 hrs/day, 365 days/year. Volunteers provide on-scene support as well as resources to help victims and survivors regain control and move forward. Citizens are provided intensive training so there is no prior experience or specific vocational background requirements.
