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. TIP works closely with local emergency response agencies who request well-trained citizen volunteers to emergency scenes to provide emotional and practical support to family members, witnesses, and other bystanders directly on-scene, during the investigative process.
Last month, we had another opportunity to support the TIP team at the Heroes with Heart yearly gala. It was a great event and wonderful to see all the TIP volunteers and the honorees.
The following individuals were selected after being nominated by TIP volunteers for their compassion and kindness on scenes of tragedy.
Laura VanDyke - Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department
Cameron Cheal - Clark County Coroner's Office
Tory McDermed - Henderson Police Department
Scott Vivier - Henderson Fire Department
Jeff Buchanan - Clark Country Fire Department
Las Vegas Fire & Rescue - TIP Champion Award
Congratulations to all the 2019 Heroes and Thank You for all you do!
