Welcome!

We are an international fellowship of Fire-Rescue Chaplains. From here you can learn about us, check out the news of the FFC, explore membership, and investigate our training.



The mission of the Federation of Fire Chaplains is to bring together persons interested in providing an effective Chaplain Service: to give aid, comfort and help to firefighters and their families; to work toward the betterment of all areas of the fire and emergency service. To serve God, to aid humanity, our communities, our government, our religions, our Country and the quality of life; to help mankind in developing their most noble characteristic-that of serving others; to help bring about a better understanding among all people with mutual harmony and respect regardless of one’s level of authority; and to achieve a single healing, unifying spirit of love for God and each other.

The Federation is non-denominational, non-sectarian and calls for no compromise of either individual beliefs or convictions. Our first responsibility is to God, and second, to humanity.

As Fire Chaplains, our work is not limited to the area of fire departments, firefighters, communities, or victims of the devastating ravages of fire or other crises. We shall strive to help ease the suffering of our fellow man wherever our paths shall lead. However, as a base for our work, we have chosen the Nation’s Fire Service, the acknowledged world’s most dangerous profession, and fire victims, whose suffering is that most beyond description.

The members of the Federation believe by bringing persons together to provide an effective response to Crisis Situations, by training, responding, in the work of the Chaplain, we will be able to achieve the goal of serving God and Humanity. This, with God’s help, we will strive to do.

To console those who mourn,

To give them  beauty for ashes...

Isaiah 61:3


The heart of a man plans his way,

  but the LORD establishes his steps.

Proverbs 16:9

If the iron is blunt, and one does not sharpen the edge

he must use more strength, but wisdom helps one to

 succeed.  Ecclesiastes 10:10


As iron sharpens iron,

So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.

Proverbs 27:17
