AVFRD Chaplains are available for those in the community in need of help. We are Ordained Clergy as well as non-ordained Lay Clergy who can help you in times of need.
Chaplains may be dispatched on certain calls, such as cardiac arrest. Chaplains are also available by request – either through the 911 dispatcher or through our personnel on-scene. Our Chaplains are trained to provide emotional support to victims, families, and friends who are impacted by an emergency, regardless of your faith. Chaplains also provide faith-based support as requested.
Some of the times you might need or want to contact us include:
- Loss & Grief
- Domestic violence
- Thoughts of suicide
You can reach the Ashburn Volunteer Fire and Rescue Chaplains at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 703-111-2222. We will respond to you as quickly as we can.
