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."  

The Sunnyvale Fire Department (www.townofsunnyvale.org/index.aspx?NID=78) is a full-service, combination department, staffed by professional Firefighters and EMT’s, as well as local citizen volunteers, 24 hours each day, 7 days per week to provide emergency response services within the Town of Sunnyvale.  Inquiries about volunteer service opportunities should be directed to the department non-emergency number: (972) 226-1484.
