        Your title is spelled 'Chaplin' as in Charlie.....

        The body of your message is spelled correctly for what you are asking.....looks like a little humor.

        Here is a link for you - http://firechaplains.org/ - your State may have an organization also that you can contact. http://firechaplain.net/default.aspx

          Sod it, Pasobuff, you have spoilt what could have very entertaining--much like the Chaplin man himself.

            I can't tell you what to do to get started, but I can tell you that we put on a chaplain last year, and he has been a great addition to the dept. I'm glad to see a person wanting to do the job.
            We do not rise to the occasion. We fall back to our level of training.

              We're a large small dept (about 130 paid career members) and we have 5 Chaplains, but they are all volunteer. I don't believe any of them have fire certifications, but they are all ordained by their particular beliefs and conduct services at their churches. I'd suggest looking around at the departments in your area (or the area you want to work) and find our which ones have career Chaplain positions. Then contact those depts and find out what they require.

              Our Chaplains show up at public events (graduations, dept parties, pictures, etc) and dedications (vehicles, stations, etc.). They are also on call to conduct CISM debriefs or if families involved in an incident (Fire, severe EMS) and request someone to talk to.

                  First of all, go to the teacher in which tried their best to teach you proper English and spelling and smack the mess out of them.

                  Then remain in school and pay attention to what they are trying their best to get into your head.

                  Also try searching the correct spelling of Chaplain.

                  The last requirement I saw was that they should be a member of the Clergy and or a Deacon in the Church.

                  Why would you think a young high school still wet all over is going to be a Chaplain and have that responsibly??

                      What gives young man??

                      You say in here that you want to be a Chaplain. In another one you say you want to be a Arson Investigator!

                      Others hreads you are saying that you are just 16 and are affiliated with the city, county and rescue squad and want to get hired by some fire department.

                      Come on guy, most everyone in her has more time waiting for their check or eating in a fire house than you have been living. Please don't try to bs everyone as we can see right through you.

                          and im not trying to be a jerk, but dose it bother you that i want to be very involved with things in the fire department? you should be glad that some one is willing to do this, it is people like you that make others hate fire fighters, we dont need some stuck up old timer thinking that a 17 year old can not do any thing to be involved in the FD. well you know what? I am tierd of it ok! i honestly am done with all the crap that people like you give! What you need to do is keep your opinions and thoughts to your self, if you cant be happy with some one wanting to be all they can be for this job than you have no right to be a fire fighter! have a great day. God bless.
