Sometimes major disasters like Hurricane Irma can make smaller mishaps like fires and car crashes seem small. But for the people involved, they are just as devastating and the need for help and comfort is immediate. That’s where the TIP program comes in. "TIP stands for the Trauma Intervention Program" said Cheryl Kulka, a volunteer with the TIP affiliate in Northwest Florida.

Residents in the western Panhandle wishing to assist victims of various traumatic events can sign up for a training program that kicks off Thursday.

Trauma Intervention Programs Inc. is a national non-profit. Its Northwest Florida chapter is seeking to expand from the current number of 30+ volunteers in Escambia, Santa Rosa, and Okaloosa Counties.
