This ministry is dedicated to the health and well-being of first-responders....-the EMT's, Fire Fighters and Policemen that we all depend on in times of emergency. The chaplains have all been on the other side, having worn the badge of one or more of these organizations. These dedicated men desire all the support that we owe them.

The chaplains and the staff are fully committed to helping first responders. Until I became involved with the organization I did not understand the full extent of the stress that our various first responders are under. This is a class organization.

I have been involved with this ministry for 2 years as a member of the board. The loyalty and commitment of the staff is second to none. The effect of their efforts on the community is amazing. At the most difficult time for first responders they minister in a most personnel way. I will continue to support this ministry with my time and financial contributions.

There are times when even the trite phase 24/7 does not accurately describe the commitment of an individual. In the time that I have known Skip, I have been amazed at his level of commitment to Emergency Ministries. Skip's dedication to this ministry is complete. For weeks on end he his available 24 hours a day to be of service to first responders.

Emergency Ministries is an incredible organization. The chaplains have all worn the badge so they understand what it is like to be a first responder and to experience the things we see. They also understand the stresses and life balance issues that come with the job. There seems to be (finally) a growing awareness in the country of the impact of PTSD on first responders; hopefully, this will allow Emergency Ministries to touch and impact even more lives.

Great organization . They are there for the first responders in there most critical time of needed. These chaplains come along side of the first responders on siene if needed. Another great thing is all there chaplain have been or are first responders themselves.

This organization is highly involved in the life and death situations of all first responders. I have seen firsthand the effect that they have had through their ability to reduce stress and PTSD as a result of the circumstances in which first responders find them self involved. Emergency Ministries is called to the scene when the first responders are experiencing these critical incidents and are following up with visits, phone calls, providing counseling to the first responders and their families, and even performing the funerals for those who were killed in the line of duty. This organization deeply blesses and improves the lives it touches!

I'm a psychotherapist that volunteers with Emergency Ministries when they do critical incident stress management debreifings for first responders. I can't emphasize enough how important this service is to first responders that have participated in horrific events during the course of their job.

The man God placed in charge of this phenomenal organization truly is the epitome of the phrase, "This little light of mine, I'm going let it shine". Not only does he exhaust his own life to save others.... He TRULY "saves" lives for our Daddy God. I couldn't be more sincere and proud to call him my father!!!!

Just by sitting down and speaking with this group at our station made a big impact and helped us gain a sense of peace after one of our fellow firefighters committed suicide. I was not aware of this organization before that day, but I am glad now to support such a needed ministry. Far too often Firefighters are left to deal with the aftermath of a traumatic event alone and this Ministry reaches out and shows God's love to us in our most desperate time of need. Thank you!
