Boundary County Chaplain Corpst

Boundary County Chaplain Corps

BCCC was started in the summer of 2013 by a group of pastors and church leaders in Boundary County Idaho. Accordingly, BCCC is an unapologetic, Bible-based Christian ministry that works with the support of the local Church.

The purpose of BCCC is to provide support and encouragement to first responders and their families here in Boundary County, both on scene and afterwards. The focus is upon the spiritual and emotional needs of first responders, as well as to victims in times of crisis. On a crime or fire scene especially, chaplains can aid officers and firefighters by attending to victims so that the officers and firefighters can accomplish their duties with a minimum of distraction. Our first priority as an organization, however, is to the first responders themselves as they deal with the stresses and challenges of their jobs.

BCCC chaplains will be on call to be dispatched as needed. We are available to assist not only on scene with immediate crisis situations, but also with death notifications, Critical Incident Stress Management, marriage and family counseling, and general assistance to help officers, firefighters, EMTs, and other first responders and their families thrive in their work and relationships.
