    Having a Pastor on my department, not sure I would want a Chaplain who "just took some classes". There is a whole lot more to it than that.

    Bible basher/God botherer--look it up in Google. Like Jonnee I am a stuck up don't know anything old timer--do not know how I managed to get paid by the dept for all those years --must be the good looks!

    May I suggest a solution to your quandary in being unable to get some semblance of order in your grammar and spelling?

    Enter a monastery, hand copy by pen and ink every book you can find on religion--start easy 10xcopies of the Bible /5xcopies Koran/ 5xcopies Hindu/5xcopies anything on Buddha--finally have a go at my religion-Wicca /Cernunnos/Herne the Hunter--you will certainly be better tutored and it will all have be done by you.

    Must admit I have a grudging respect for old time religion--Lions 5 --Christians -Nil --really had to be a believer back then

    [QUOTE=Jonnee;1168903]Well Skippy, When I was 17 I graduated from high school and three weeks later enlisted in the Army. After serving for three years and nearly had my butt shot off several times, I returned home and got a job working in a plant! About two years or so later I was hired by a fire department and in maybe two more years I will retired.

    Yes I am one of the old timers, but sonny boy, I earn it!

    I assumed that you know that to be a Chaplain you should be a member of the clergy? Plus you right off the box wanting to be an arson investigator

    You are still wet behind the ears and with you little boy , I want to do this, attitude, you will have a very hard time if you ever get hired by a career department running your mouth off as you are now.

    My advice, open your ears, pay attention to what Firefighters say and keep your mouth shut and your opinions to yourself as of now they do not mean squat to anyone.
    QUOTE]

    I am working hard on my Grammer, and i am also working hard on keeping my aditude in check, but as far as the clergy goes, for the TAC. you just go to classes to become a chaplin, your church just has to sponsor you. i am also wanting to go to Arson SCHOOL. im not trying to be one right off the get go, i realy am sorry for my come apart on you as i realy am trying to get that in control.

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 yourself, 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.

    I have nothing against 16 or 17 years old. They just need to serve their time before trying to be something that they may never be. I assumed that you know that to be a Chaplain you should be a member of the clergy? Plus you right off the box wanting to be an arson investigator, well good luck if you can and do. I was certified about 15 years ago one and that is after I had been on the job for 15 or so years.

    You are still wet behind the ears and with you little boy , I want to do this, attitude, you will have a very hard time if you ever get hired by a career department running your mouth off as you are now.

    Also, please learn proper grammar and spelling as yours is terrible for the age that you say you are. The school you attend I know aren't that backward! I know as I grew up in Sevierville!

    Oh yes, one more thing, I won't bother myself answering any more of your silly postings!

    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??

    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.
