The event is the organization’s annual fundraising celebration, where funds raised go to the invaluable peer-to-peer counseling services to First Responders in need. The keynote speaker for the event will be Canadian firefighter/paramedic Kevin Davison, who is a singer/songwriter internationally recognized for his music video of “When Those Sirens Have Gone,” a tribute to First Responders who have encountered the effects of post-traumatic stress.

“With the disasters – both natural and man-made – that have been plaguing our society particularly as of late, it is more incumbent than ever to be able to provide the services that our everyday heroes are in desperate need of,” said J.C. “Skip” Straus, BCC, founder of Emergency Chaplain Group. “We invite you to purchase a corporate or philanthropic table or individual ticket to this event at a cost that will definitely give you a return on your investment, emotionally and financially.”

The black-tie-optional event includes dinner, the keynote address, live entertainment, silent auction, live auction, and raffle.

The Emergency Chaplain Group, founded in 1998, is a group of specially trained chaplains who respond to the needs of the first responder community both on-scene and “behind-scene,” with an emphasis on Critical Incident Stress and Post Traumatic Stress services.

The Emergency Chaplain Group’s chaplains serve EMTs, firefighters, paramedics, law enforcement officers, and dispatchers and their families. They work closely with First Responders at the scene of an accident and afterwards to cope with the horrific events they witness, such as child fatalities, teenage suicide, or the deadly effects of drunk driving. We understand that it is difficult for First Responders to separate themselves from their feelings and “turn it off” at the end of the shift.

All of Emergency Chaplain Group’s Chaplains have been First Responders. In dealing with post-traumatic stress, their Chaplains continue to assist the First Responders and their families in dealing with critical incident stress, ongoing stress, anxiety, depression, and relationship issues.

Let’s pretend that you are a first responder. The tones come blasting over the radio, “Engine 1, Medic 1, Rescue 2 – sheriff is enroute with you on a report of a motor vehicle incident with rollover and reports of people trapped.”
This is the reality of being a first responder. They have to be there 24 hours per day for you. What would happen if they weren’t there to respond? That is why the Emergency Chaplain Group’s Chaplains are there 24 hours per day for them – when they experience sights and sounds that the rest of people never want to see – chaplains help them through it.
