Sunnyvale Fire and Rescue
Sunnyvale Fire Chaplaincy
|Friends of the Gideons invited Fr. Brown to accompany them on a Bible presentation at Sunnyvale Volunteer Fire Department. After that introduction, a series of conversations with Chief Plumlee and Assistant Chief Mackey ensued. Subsequently, the membership voted to invite Fr. Brown to join the department as their Chaplain. |
Fr. Brown had served as a Fire Chaplain in his previous parish, and had helped out as a volunteer chaplain with the Richardson Police on a part time basis, so the opportunity to once again serve a neighborhood fire department appealed to him.
"Hanging out with these guys is one of the ways I recharge my batteries for the ministry of the parish," Fr. Brown said, "and with the number and type of calls they make, there is a valid need here."
