Life happens. Many of the calls, events and incidents within the realm of the law enforcement and the fire service are extremely unique. Granted, most calls might be considered "routine" (though nothing is to be considered "routine") and "all in a day's work." But quite often, firefighters and peace officers enter into some of the most extraordinary situations dealing with danger, tragedy, disaster, deviant criminal behavior and evil. Men and women who have a desire to serve citizens are frequently involved in very difficult and tragic situations. Equally significant are the community members who are victimized or who experience tragic loss and are in need of support as well. Often, the whole community is impacted when a public tragic event occurs.
This chaplaincy is God centered through chaplains who have the giftedness, experience and natural ability to develop relationships with personnel in the fire service and law enforcement as well as the community at large. A successful chaplaincy rests the personality and relational skill of the chaplain. A chaplaincy is effective when a chaplain is able to connect, relate and earn trust among the fire and law enforcement personnel or employees. Community Chaplain Resources is not a vehicle with an agenda of proselytizing or manipulating others religiously. A chaplain is simply a servant.
