    Essentials of Fire Chaplaincy

    Lisbon, Maine

    July 8-9, 2021


    The "Essentials of Fire Chaplaincy" is a foundational training course for the fire department chaplain. This two day course is the basis for training recognition by the Federation of Fire Chaplains and earns the student a certificate from the FFC upon completion. U.S. Fire Departments are now using this FFC training as the standard for fire chaplaincy across the country, allowing chaplains to minister within the fire service wherever life takes them. 

    The content of the Essentials course was developed by fire chaplains across the country to be practical help for on scene and in-firehouse ministry. Instructors are certified by FFC to teach using an interactive approach which involves students in the classroom process.

    This course provides an opportunity for everyone - experienced chaplains, new chaplains, and prospective chaplains alike - to learn valuable lessons about Fire Chaplaincy. The class consists of 16 hours of instruction, over the course of two days, covering the following areas:

    • History of Chaplaincy

    • Personhood of the Chaplain

    • Ministry to Crisis Victims

    • Ministry to Fire Personnel

    • Introduction to Critical Incident Stress

    • Introduction to Incident Command

    • Fire Chaplain Safety

    • Firefighter Injury and Death

    • Fire Department Funerals

    • Confidentiality & Professionalism

    You must be present for the entire 16 hours of instruction (or make arrangements prior to the class) to receive a Certificate for the course from the Federation of Fire Chaplains.
