The Upland Fire Department

Chaplain

About the UFD Chaplain Program

The purpose of the Upland Fire Department Chaplain Program is to
utilize ordained individuals to provide ministry support to meet the
spiritual, emotional, and physical need of members within the City of
Upland that have been impacted by traumatic events. This program is
also intended to provide ministry support to the citizens of the Upland
Fire Department and/or their families. Situations potentially involving
Chaplain support may include serious illness, injury, death, or significant emotional trauma.

The Upland Fire Department Chaplain program will assist Upland Fire
Department Administration in dealing with situations such as notification of a line of duty death or serious injury. Assistance will include coordinating with the family during times of death, serious injury, or other difficult and emotional situations.

The Upland Fire Department Chaplain may participate, whenever possible, in Critical Incident Stress Debriefing.
