thanks for the add Tom. I'm looking at becoming the Chaplain on my department, do you know of any NFPA standards or certifications that a guy would have to have to be official in that capacity? I haven't been able to find anything along those lines, and I don't want to miss anything. My Chief is excited about it but I told him that I want to have all my ducks in a row before I approach the fire board with it. My pastor is very supportive and I plan to have licensure through my local church, although I am not ordained, and do not intend to be.
