Responsibilities of  the Waynesboro Fire

 Department Chaplain

Some people may be unclear of what a Waynesboro Fire Department chaplain does. Our fire department chaplain's primary focus is on the needs of the Waynesboro Fire Department's members and whatever situation the firefighters encounter where the chaplain may be of service to both the firefighters and the community. Essentially a fire department chaplain is there is to assist the members and the  family in crisis.


Some of the responsibilities of the fire department chaplain are, provide guidance and counseling for fire personnel for job-related problems and personal problems, including counseling with immediate family members and assist in any way possible when fire personnel are seriously injured, ill, or deceased.  A fire department chaplain will often provide a family who has lost a member of the family who was on the fire department, because the chaplain has spent so much time with that family members at the fire department, that it is comforting to talk to someone who knows your family member so well. Our chaplain will also attend various departmental social functions and participate when appropriate. Assisting at weddings, memorial services, funerals and religious activities when requested, including invocations and benedictions at official community functions.



You maybe out there saving life and property - But what about you?
