A Fire Chaplin helps fire department members in the event of an injured or killed firefighter. They are also available to personnel for grief counseling. They lend an ear for those who need to talk about something that is bothering them, such as physical or emotional stress. A fire chaplain's goal is to aid, comfort and help firefighters and their families.
Spotsylvania Volunteer Fire Department welcomes Denise Gates as our new department Fire Chaplain. Denise brings an extensive background of experience that will assist our organization with quality customer service to ensure the residents of Spotsylvania County our firefighters are always ready to answer the call.
