BOISE, Idaho — Are you a caring person who likes helping other people?

If so, you might be a good fit for the nonprofit Trauma Intervention Program (TIP).

TIP serves as a resource to emergency responders.

It consists of neighbors who are willing to help out and offer emotional support in the immediate aftermath of a tragedy -- like a sudden death.

The group is looking for volunteers.

Participants undergo a 55-hour long training, and, once they are up to speed, they serve three, 12-hour on-call shifts per month.

The next academy is set for January 17.
