Chaplain Response Officers, First Responders; 

(The Difference)

Chaplain Volunteer Emergency First Responder;

Clergy, Watchman, or Chaplain Officer..

a person holding a position of command or Authority in a public, civil, or ecclesiastical office, Clergy Members.

Ecclesiastical; Anything ecclesiastical is related to the Christian Church, Act, Religious practice, and ministry, 

Pursuant, and Protected by the 1st Constitutional Amendment Act, and holding Clergy-Penitent Privileges.

Traditionally, a chaplain is a minister, such as a priest, pastor, rabbi, imam or lay representative of a religious tradition, attached to a secular institution such as a hospital, prison, military unit, school, police department, university, or private chapel. The word "chaplain" refers to representatives of the Christian faith,[1] it is may be applied to people of other religions or philosophical traditions–such as the case of chaplains serving with military forces and an increasing number of chaplaincies at American universities.[2] In recent times, many lay people have received professional training in chaplaincy and are now appointed as chaplains in schools, hospitals, universities, prisons and elsewhere to work alongside, or instead of, official members of the clergy.[3] The concept of "generic" and/or "multifaith" chaplaincy is also gaining increasing support, particularly within healthcare and educational settings.[4]

  • Chaplains working with emergency services personnel provide the same kind of support as do chaplains working with law enforcement, and sometimes face even greater danger, working with the wounded in often very dangerous surroundings.

At the scene of the September 11 attacks on New York's World Trade Center, for example, Franciscan friar and New York City Fire Department Chaplain Fr. Mychal F. Judge lost his life to flying debris from the South Tower when he re-entered the North Tower lobby of the World Trade Center, shortly after administering last rites to a wounded firefighter.[30]

  • West Corp DPD Chaplain Response Officers are a voluntary workmanship and members of the Clergy, In which this group has a proprietary interest in emergency responsiveness, and assisting with the community and local emergency and government groups thereof with such tasks, we are a standby Task force in assistance with your local community in reporting such incidents to local emergency departments, in elevating..public safety and awareness, In (CERT) Crime prevention, CPR & First Aid, Fire safety, and Disaster Relief situations, utilized as a secondary back-up and first hand Emergency assistance group, just as many other groups out there, the difference is our Spirituality response system, in our Goal to show the love of the divine Heavenly Father through good Samaritan Acts.

We have and are connected with well trained Ministerial Chaplains on duty 24/7 around the clock for prayer, spiritual motivation & encouragement, and Emergency Assistance.

  1. ) A Chaplain may be either a full, part time paid or volunteer of the Department. The department shall maintain a number of chaplains as determined by the Chief. The Chaplain’s position is a volunteer position. He or she must be mature individuals with a sound moral and spiritual background. It is the responsibility of the Chaplain’s office to provide guidance and counseling to all members of the Department, upon request. The guidance and counseling may be in matters of spiritual, personal, family, job, or other nature. The Chaplain is to maintain regular established working hours whereby he/she can be contacted by phone, radio, pager, or in person. The Chaplain is on call 24 hours each day, seven days a week, and is available to assist in emergency matters during these times. The Chaplain is also available in situations whereby the possibility of injury to personnel is high, such as large structure fires, natural disasters, attempted suicides, riots, demonstrations, homeland security issues, etc. The Chaplain is to act as a resource person in matters where a specialist is required or needed. The Chaplain may be called upon to serve in situation where other agencies, Fire Department or EMS Service may not have a Chaplain and require this specialized service. 

  • As religious leaders of the community, chaplains are responsible for tending to the religious and moral well-being of service members and their families. The chaplain's responsibilities include everything from performing religious rites and conducting worship services to providing confidential counseling and advising councilors on religious, spiritual and moral matters. at least one chaplain and at least one chaplain assistant or religious program specialist are enlisted personnel. 

    The chaplain teams' primary obligations are to service members and their family members. These obligations include the following:

    • Conducting worship and administering sacraments - Chaplain teams are responsible to their commanders to ensure service members and their families have the opportunity to worship as they choose. This means that chaplains conduct worship services and administer sacraments consistent with their own faith and also facilitate accommodations for persons of other faiths. For example, a Protestant chaplain cannot perform a Mass for Roman Catholics, but can locate a Roman Catholic chaplain to administer the sacrament. (unless otherwise specified.)
    • Performing other religious ceremonies and services - Chaplains also perform religious rites and ceremonies such as baptisms, funerals or memorial services and may perform marriages.
    • Counseling for service members and their families - While chaplains are not generally licensed counselors, they are prepared to help people with various life challenges — including issues related to work, combat & and emergency response stress, marriage ceremonies, family matters, substance abuse, grief and finances.  
    • However, some of them do have professional training in these areas. These type of short term counseling situations fall under the requirement of "pastoral care." Chaplains may refer individuals to other counseling sources for long-term counseling or therapy. All such communications with a chaplain, chaplain assistant or religious program specialist are known as "privileged communications." These communications cannot be disclosed to anyone else without the written consent of the person receiving counseling.
    • Conducting visitation with service members - Chaplain Corps members are involved in military units. Wherever they connect with military members, chaplain teams offer comfort, religious support and pastoral care. Chaplain teams elevate the resilience of military members and their loved ones in demanding environments.
    • Advising commanders on religious and moral matters - Chaplain Corps members serve as advisors to commanders on matters of religion, morality and integrity, which may include the following:
      • Meeting the religious needs of assigned personnel
      • Assessing the spiritual and moral climate of the command
      • Planning and programming related to the moral quality of leadership, the care of people, religious education and related funding issues associated with religious programming within the commander's area of responsibility
      • Overseeing the planning and maintenance of religious facilities
      • Publicizing religious program activities
    • Developing religious education programs and religious youth activities - The chaplain provides religious instruction and is responsible to the community for religious education programs such as Sunday school classes and youth programs. They also train lay leaders who conduct religious education programs. Lay leaders are trained volunteers appointed by the  command. Lay leaders help to meet the needs of a particular religious faith group when chaplains of that faith group are not available. Lay leaders are most often used in expeditionary settings. All lay leaders operate with the written approval of their faith group and under the supervision of the respective service's chaplaincy.
    • Conducting seminars and retreats - Chaplains conduct seminars and retreats for the religious, moral and social development of service members and their families. Seminar topics may include a wide range of topics such as:
      • Marriage/relationship enrichment
      • Parenting skills
      • Religious leadership training
      • Service member transition from combat & and Taskforce operations
      • Spiritual management in Crime Prevention
      • Spiritual Assistance in Disaster Relief
      • Spiritual Assistance in Search & Rescue groups
      • Anger management
      • Religious formation for youth and adults
    • Instructing chaplains and chaplain assistants - Your senior chaplain plans, conducts, assesses, monitors and supports the training of all subordinate chaplains, as well as chaplain assistants or religious program specialists.
    • Accompanying service members into emergency response situations - Chaplains go wherever local & domestic Emergency management groups are needed, members are to include accompanying service members into emergency response situations . The chaplain is the chaplain assistant or religious program specialist is an emergency response management and ensures force protection for the chaplain in hostile environments.
    • Providing emergency response stress intervention - The chaplain team forms an important component of the commander's program for operational stress control. This team provides immediate support to leaders in fulfilling their stress identification and intervention responsibilities. The team also helps train leaders in the chain of command to recognize stress symptoms and trains others in basic counseling skills to enable service members to communicate their stress. Chaplains work very closely with emergency response groups & medical personnel in training and treatment related to this important issue.
