Hello my name is Bill Whitford and I pastor First Baptist Church Of Calumet City IL. In conjunction with our clergy coalition and our Fire Dept. we are in the process of forming a volunteer chaplaincy program. If any one has any suggestions on websites or resources related to this area I would appreciate knowing about them. We are especially interested in Dept. Guidelines, and Legal and Ethical issues related to volunter chaplains.
We also intend on expanding this in the future to cover all the Emergency Services in our city, so if anyone is working with both Police and Fire Dept.s your input would be deeply appreciated. My E-mail address is: Pastor_Bill_Whitford@Juno.Com
