Opening Up About Behavioral Health

Listen when the firefighters in your department talk. We need to be willing to actively listen and have some tough conversations.

Any individual who wants to excel in his career will pursue training that is on the cutting edge of the industry. However, it’s time to also address the killer in the room that is affecting so many of our firefighters: our mental and behavioral health.

Role of a Fire Chaplain

Fire Chaplains are non-denominational and provide faith based aid, comfort, counsel and help to our members of the Fire Department, both civilian and sworn, and their families. Fire Chaplains are available to help our members and their families when they are facing some type of tragedy or difficulty in their personal or professional lives. Fire Chaplains are counselors who may be approached in confidence and must hold information provided to them in confidence
