The work of the Casper Fire-EMS Department Chaplains is both critical and beneficial to our fire department. Chaplains can play an instrumental role during certain emergency incidents, especially when those incidents involve the serious injury and/or death of a citizen or firefighter. Chaplains who respond to scenes offer both spiritual and emotional guidance to anyone who was involved on an emergency scene including firefighters, family members and citizens. Chaplains respond to these scenes upon the request of the Incident Commander who will either have a request from someone involved or determines the need for Chaplain assistance due to scene dynamics. Our Chaplains provide emotional and/or spiritual support of our personnel 24/hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
