TIP Training Schedule

Trauma Intervention Programs of Western North Carolina is looking for caring people in Buncombe and Henderson Counties willing to be part of a team of volunteers who provide immediate emotional and practical support to survivors of traumatic events. TIP Volunteers are called to emergency scenes by sheriff, police, firefighters, and paramedics to.....

- Comfort family members after a sudden death.
- Support family members after a suicide.
- Help witnesses to traumatic events.
- Assist disoriented elderly persons who call 911 with non emergency needs.
- Support those emotionally shaken after auto accidents.
- Assist tourists and travelers when tragedy strikes and they are far from home.

Right now we are recruiting residents of Buncombe and Henderson Counties to become TIP Volunteers. No experience is necessary, but completion of a Training Academy is necessary. We will train at Skyland Fire Department and Hendersonville Station #2.
