Chaplains working with fire departments provide the same kind of support to firefighters as do chaplains working with law enforcement, and sometimes face even greater danger working with the wounded in often hazardous surroundings.

A fire department or fire brigade, also known as a fire authority, fire district, fire and Rescue, or fire service in some areas, is an organization that provides fire prevention, fire suppression, rescue, and hazardous materials mitigation.
Fire departments are most commonly public sector organizations that operate within a municipality, county, state, nation, or special district. Private and specialist firefighting organizations, such as those for aircraft rescue and firefighting, also exist.
