Hi Wendy:

Nice to know you are showing the love of Christ in this profession. That was also my goal. I hope you will read, and pass on the word--regarding the book about me, doing just that! "Angel Promises...Remembering the Youngest Firefighter." "The Thirtymile fire" is expected to be a movie...out sometime after the latest re-make of "Fire On the Mountain,"(book by John N. Maclean) by National Georgraphic films in 2009. See www.karenleefitzpatrick.com The Lord is everpresent, and with us always, even through the hardest day, and the most horrific fires!--KF

Hi Wendy, I'm not sure how to connect you or provide the FFN address for another member being new to FFN. I have had the opportunity to talk a couple of times to a wonderful Fire Chaplain in South Africa that I am sure would benefit and truly enjoy having the opportunity to take advantage of the resources that you have access to. Here's one of our fire chaplains on scene at a reported drowning in my 1st in district, which happens to be the pacific ocean... : ) Take care, Mike

Wendy;

I've met Ronnie before. I'll email him for more information. I've been here for 13 years now and on the Honor Guard for 10 (3 of which as the OIC), and did not know we had a state task force for funerals. I'm curious to see what his response is. We have a Chaplains association, but I had to teach them a class last year on funeral protocol at the county fire school. Unfortunately I was only afforded a couple of hours, which of course wasn't nearly enough time

Fortunately we don't have many LODD deaths here. Most of the funerals we've participated in have been non-LODD, but even still there never seems to be any direction. We try to be a leader in this aspect, but typically get railroaded by someone else who thinks they know how things should be.

In any event - thanks for your thoughts.

Stay safe. Train often.

Thanks Wendy for clarifying that for me. I guess I misunderstood the purpose of your trip, but after reading your Bio I understand.

It's good to see that someone is taking an active role in LODD services. I've been involved in a few here and too often it seems as if there is no direction and there are several people trying to put their hands in the process, which makes a difficult situation even more so.

It would be nice to have a task force or something similar here to lay the foundation for consistent and adequate services.

Keep up the good work and God Bless. As far as I'm concerned, your job is just as important as any of ours, if not more so.
