The Orange County Trauma Intervention Program (OC TIP) is looking for new volunteers to help survivors in the immediate aftermath of traumatic events.  

Fires, traffic accidents, and other horrible events happen every day. And when they do, the hardworking and caring OC TIP volunteers are called to those emergency scenes to provide emotional support to first responders and victims  

No past experience or requirements are needed to join OC TIP. All you need is a lot of love to give your fellow citizens going through tough times and time to attend all of the TIP Training Academy dates, listed below: 

  • 2/24/22 – 6:30 to 10:00 PM 
  • 2/25/22 – 7:00 to 10:00 PM 
  • 2/26/22 – 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM 
  • 2/27/22 – 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM 
  • 3/1/22 – 6:00 to 10:00 PM 
  • 3/3/22 – 6:30 to 10:00 PM 
  • 3/4/22 – 6:00 to 10:00 PM 
  • 3/5/22 – 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM 

Wednesday, March 9th will be the first monthly mandatory continuing education meeting from 6:30 to 9:30 PM. Monthly education meetings will be held on the second Wednesday of every month. 

Some of the kinds of scenes you will be called to as a TIP volunteer are sudden accidents or deaths, suicides, traffic accidents, or fires, so if you know you won’t be able to handle being around that kind of trauma, this volunteer opportunity isn’t for you. But, if you have the fortitude and want to help those who really need it, the Orange County Trauma Intervention Program would love to have you on board.
