Embedded First Responder Chaplaincy

A New Book by Glenn Davis and Teresa Cutts

First Responders are our most valuable but also most vulnerable public servants. The many stressors of their jobs are life-altering and greatly impact the quality of life for them and their families. They serve and protect us daily, often putting their health and even their lives in peril.

This book shares in depth the work of the Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist’s First Responder Chaplaincy Program’s (FRCP) team members. It includes the FRCP’s history, devel­opment, staffing and training, and is a comprehensive, descriptive and quantitative effort to highlight and value its work.
