Essentials of Fire Chaplaincy training is the basic training for fire chaplains. The Essentials training is a 16 hour face-to-face training that provides an unparalleled opportunity to receive knowledge and skills needed to become an effective fire chaplain.
completed this training on April 7-8, 2017 at Ruston Fire Department.
A great group of guys learned new information, shared experiences with each other, and formed lasting relationships.
No One Left Behind… firefighters don’t let one grieve alone.
We had a total of 24 people go through the Grief Work – the process from loss to acceptance class in 2016.
Some reviews from those in the class: “Yes, real world class.” “Excellent group interaction.” Experienced and very professional instructor.” “Excellent content.” “This information is a must to us.” “This course is very important to the practice of fire chaplaincy.” “Instructor was very knowledgeable in the course material.” “To the point, teaching with relevant situations. Please give us more of these courses.” “So impressed by instructor’s knowledge and patience.” “Helped me to understand the phases of grief, gained knowledge from personal life and ministry experiences of the instructor.” “This course is ‘Top of The Line.'”
With these reviews, we might do it again next year.
We have surveyed the membership for some possible CISM classes:
Group & individual Intervention (three day class)
Pastoral Crisis Intervention I & II (three day class)
Emotional and Spiritual Care in Disaster (two day class) and so far we DO NOT HAVE enough to do any one of these classes. If you know of someone who needs one of these classes, please let us
know as soon as possible.
We have a possible Essentials class coming up in the Florida Parishes
area (Region 9) . Watch this space for a date and venue.
