PORTLAND, Ore. - October 4, 2017 - (Newswire.com)

MEDCURE has announced that it will support the local Portland/Vancouver Oregon chapter of Trauma Intervention Program (TIP) with education and training seminars.

TIP is a group of specially trained citizen volunteers who provide emotional aid and practical support and resources to victims of traumatic events and their families in the first few hours following a tragedy.

TIP Volunteers are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. They are called by the emergency response system (police officers, firefighters, paramedics, hospital personnel and medical examiners) to assist family members and friends following a natural or unexpected death; victims of violent crime; 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 just to name a few. No call is too small for the TIP Volunteer.
