Professionally, my ministry credentials are held by the Pacific Northwest Conference of the United Church of Christ. The International Conference of Police Chaplains and the Federation of Fire Chaplains both have recognized me as a Master Chaplain. I hold two doctoral degrees (one in emergency medical service systems, and the other in counseling and men's issues) as well as a bachelor's degree in journalism and the fine arts. I've written several books and currently am producing a series of training videos for the fire service. My book, "The World's Worst News" on death notifications, is about ready to go to the printer.
My work also has included more than a dozen years as an editor and reporter for several major United States daily newspapers, founding director of the King County, WA, emergency medical service system, system analyst for the Washington State Senate's Ways & Means Committee handling a $45 billion budget, and small business owner.
Since I was ordained by the United Church of Chist at University Congregational Church in Seattle in 1984, I have served three churches as a pastor (small suburban, large downtown city, and small rural) as well as serving as a police and fire department chaplain. I've mostly retired as a pastor but continue to work as a chaplain and perform weddings and funeral services in the community.
Thanks for the reply Sir. I have already made contact with Sir Harold and he has offered some fair suggestion to how i can give trainings to the team and is said to be planning to send out a package of training materials.
Good day! My name is Elmer S. Acolentaba Jr., I'm the Aircraft Fire and Rescue Unit Chief of Caticlan Airport here in the Philippines. In my pursuit to improve our station trainings/lectures/courses, I would humbly like to request for any ARFF, Fire and Rescue training materials of any possible topic. It would be very much appreciated and i guarantee the security/privacy of your work in terms of copyrights and patents. Any material sent/forwarded shall be handled only by me and shall not be posted in the internet or published.
I am very much hoping that you would consider granting my humble request. A request is all i could do due to lack of financial capacity to procure training materials for our department. Due to passive support from the airport management for trainings, i myself strive to give the team some lectures and trainings. It would be great if we had better training materials as ours is already old.
