Our Mission at TFFC is: RISE TO SERVE and is founded on the four following principles.
RELATIONSHIP - The only way that we, at the Tennessee Federation of Fire Chaplains can meet the needs of those we serve is through RELATIONSHIPS. Relationships with one another, other departments, and other agencies all with the common goal to serve our fellow man where ever and when ever the need may arise.
INTEGRITY - We believe that respect and dignity are of utmost importance when assisting you in your time of need and we believe that in order to fulfill the honor that has been placed on each individual who is a part of our team you must have INTEGRITY. It is only when we hold ourselves and each other to such a standard can we truly be effective.
SERVICE - TFFC and TESCA is made up of individuals from various Departments across Tennessee with a desire to serve not just the community in which they live but all across our state. It is in serving you when you need it that we truly meet our calling. That is why we have multiple quick response teams across Tennessee to answer every call in a timely fashion.
EXCELLENCE - You deserve excellence and that is what we promise to provide, regardless of your need you can be assured you are receiving the excellence you and your department or family deserves. We are among the most qualified, highly trained, and best equipped Fire Chaplains in America. That is why every chaplain within our federation has promised to RISE and meet any need you may have.
The Tennessee Federation of Fire Chaplains supports the ministries of volunteer and paid fire department, ambulance service, and rescue squad chaplains, and assists emergency service agencies in developing their chaplaincy programs.
RISE to Serve.
This is at the very heart of every Chaplain in our organization.
