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 chaplain@ashburnfirerescue.org or at 703-111-2222.  We will respond to you as quickly as we can.
