“First responders, medics carry burden when deaths occur” by Heather Mongilio

“First responders, medics carry burden when deaths occur” by Jeremy Arias, Heather Mongilio, The Frederick News Post, June 30, 2019

For police officers [fire and police chaplains] and doctors alike, telling family members a loved one died is part of the job.

[…]

New officers are taught to avoid using euphemisms or phrases like "your family member is in a better place," or "your loved one has moved on," preferring instead to use more direct language, while remaining as sympathetic as possible.

Frederick police send two officers on death notifications, preferably a male and a female, along with one of several volunteer chaplains the department rotates between to assist.

Firefighters quick to extinguish flames in Westminster house fire

Firefighters quick to extinguish flames in Westminster house fire

A Westminster home was damaged following a fire Thursday evening.

The call for service went out just after 6 p.m., and firefighters from Westminster, Reese, New Windsor, and Pleasant Valley companies responded to the residence in the 600 block of Spring Meadow Drive.

Upon arrival, responders observed smoke showing from the single-family dwelling, according to Kevin Dayhoff, spokesman and chaplain for the Westminster Volunteer Fire Department.

Westminster initiated an interior attack, and the fire was immediately extinguished, he said. Significant damage to the structure was observed.

No injuries were reported. Family is assisting the displaced occupants.

The incident remains under investigation by the Office of the State Fire Marshal.

The Westminster Volunteer Fire Department asks that residents take special care with fire safety.

Today's verses come from Deuteronomy 31:8 and Isaiah 52:12

Deuteronomy 31:8- The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.

Isaiah 52:12 But you will not leave in haste or go in flight; for the Lord will go before you, the God of Israel will be your rear guard.

Update - Home damaged in early morning Westminster fire, no one injured




November 25, 2015 S. Wayne Carter Jr. Carroll County Times

More than 50 firefighters from 10 companies in four counties were needed to get an early Wednesday morning fire under control in Westminster.

No injuries were reported, and it's unclear if anyone was home at the time of the blaze, according to an emailed report from Westminster Vol. Fire Company spokesman Kevin Dayhoff…


The Office of the State Fire Marshal is investigating the cause of the fire, which appears to have originated in the carport of the one-story, single family home in the 500 block of Old Baltimore Road off Malcolm Drive, according to Dayhoff. The fire quickly spread to the adjacent house and a nearby vehicle and equipment trailer.

Firefighters received the call around 1:33 a.m., were on the scene by 1:37 a.m. and had the fire under control within an hour, according to Dayhoff.

About 50 firefighters from Westminster, Reese, Pleasant Valley, Gamber, Hampstead and Sykesville companies were dispatched in addition to firefighters from Reisterstown and Glyndon in Baltimore County, a unit from York County and an air support unit from Howard County, according to Dayhoff.

+++++++++++++++++++

Please be fire-safe out there for the holidays. As we were wrapping-up operations from the Old Baltimore Road fire, many of us exchanged our goodbyes and “Happy Holidays,” and in the dry dark humor of firefighters, many folks remarked how much it is a drag to see each other in the middle of the night.

After-all, face it, when we see each other in the middle of the night it is often as a result of a fire, traffic accident, illness or family tragedy. One firefighter told the truth, “Oh this is the season when we will see a lot of each other.” Sadly it is true. Although more research is needed, it always seems that fires and accidents increase in number during the holiday season. Be safe out there.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++

Update: 3:25 p.m., Nov. 25, 2015

No injuries were reported. There were “two individuals at home when the fire started,” according to DSFM Bruce D. Bouch, director of public education and media affairs with the Office of the State Fire Marshal.

According to a recent release by the fire marshal’s office, the cause of the fire was “Accidental due to ashes being placed in a plastic bag and put next to the shed.”

“During the winter months and the holiday season, it is especially important to dispose of all fireplace, cooking grill and wood stove ashes safely in a fireproof container away from the house and certainly away from anything combustible. Pour some water on the ashes – be fire safe to protect your property and your family,” said Dayhoff

“It is important to note that the folks who were home at the time of this fire got out safely because they had a working smoke alarm and the alarm alerted them that there was a fire... Take this opportunity to check your smoke alarm before friends and family visit for the holidays,” said Dayhoff

Firefighters and first responders see a little too much of each other during the holiday season. The fire marshal’s office and the Westminster fire department take this opportunity to remind you to not have first responders over to your house this holiday season as uninvited guests.

“Although we are very friendly, this time of the year, we are way too serious to attend your holiday get-together in the event of a fire. Ensure your guests are aware of all available exits if a fire would occur… The leading cause of fires in the kitchen is unattended cooking. Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking on the stovetop so you can keep an eye on the food. And if you are going to be careless, have extra food available in case 50 firefighters need to stop by in the middle of the night to come tromping through your house. Happy holidays from your local Carroll County fire department of the fire marshal’s office.

Westminster fire department chaplain and public information officer Kevin E. Dayhoff

Memorial Day prayer at the Carroll County Vietnam Memorial

Memorial Day prayer at the Carroll County Vietnam Memorial

Memorial Day in Westminster - From left, Jan Battaglini, Glenn Bair, Sally Adams and Doug Battaglini, all of Westminster, gather during a prayer at the Carroll County Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Westminster Monday, May 25, 2015. (DYLAN SLAGLE/CARROLL COUNTY TIMES /May 25, 2015) - See more at: http://www.carrollcountytimes.com/news/local/ph-cc-memorial-day-parade-052615-20150526,0,4595380.story

Not pictured, behind Doug Battaglini was Kevin E. Dayhoff and LTC. Ronald Hollingsworth, US Army (Ret.)

Memorial Day prayer at the Carroll County Vietnam Memorial


As has been our routine dating back to the 1990s, a number of us gather at the Carroll County Vietnam Memorial at Willis and Court Streets in Westminster across the street from the historic Carroll County Courthouse.

The Carroll County Maryland Vietnam Memorial Park was dedicated on May 28, 1990. There are 19 names on the memorial. Of the 19 names – 17 killed in action, one missing in action and a former prisoner of war - some we knew.  Some we didn’t.  But they were all someone’s son or father or brother or uncle – or a cherished childhood friend.  Their faces have been silent for many years, but they all have a story to tell.

Over 2.7 million Americans served in the Vietnam War.  The average age was 19.  Of that number, 300,000 were wounded in action, and 75,000 were disabled.  It has been estimated that almost 5 million military personnel and civilians, from all sides, lost their life in the Vietnam War.  Of the 58,200 names listed on the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, 1,046 are Marylanders who made the ultimate sacrifice in the Vietnam War.

This year our prayer was:

Put on the whole armor of God

May 25, 2015 Memorial Day CC Vietnam Memorial prayer

By Kevin E. Dayhoff, Westminster Fire Engine and Hose Co. No. 1 and Maryland Troopers Association Lodge #20 Chaplain.

The Lord be with you. Heavenly Father, Hear our prayer

We are brought here together through your common call to service to our family, community and country. We ask that God's healing and loving presence be with all of us today on Memorial Day who may have unspoken needs.

We have gathered here in your name as we have been called to be a people of prayer. We praise you because you are our creator, our redeemer and our provider.

We especially approach you today with humility and age in the shadow of the Carroll County Vietnam Memorial as we pay our respects to our fallen sons of Carroll.

Bless the souls of those brave American heroes from Carroll County on the black granite monument at the Carroll County Vietnam Memorial who died in Vietnam. We lift up and place in your loving arms the eighteen fallen sons of Carroll, individually by name and together as a family. We pray that they all be remembered by our children and our children’s children.

We pray that we may (Ephesians 6:11,) “Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil,” and be armed with the power of the Spirit, so that we may continue to make the Gospel understandable to those of us who after many years still have unanswered questions…

In the name of all we've learned by the Vietnam experience, God grant us a lasting love of peace and our fellow humans. 

Refresh our hearts with peace and love as we reconcile the Vietnam experiences with our current lives. 

For all those who selflessly put themselves in dangers way to protect others … let us pray to the Lord.

We know the good that comes to those who believe and are called for a greater purpose.

Bless this time together and for the many ways you reveal yourself to us, we gratefully praise you. 


Remember those who serve for our public safety and community. Keep them safe as they protect and serve. Allow the Holy Spirit to work in and through us to effect the accomplishment of this prayer. AMEN

Why A Fire Chaplain?

Why A Fire Chaplain?


Springfield Township, Akron Ohio

“He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.”   --- (SofS 2:4)

Retrieved November 25, 2013

Travis Case, Pastor/Teacher Northgate Baptist Church

I will attempt to answer the question: “What is a Fire Chaplain and what is his/her purpose. First, a Fire Chaplain is not a spokesperson for the Fire Department and he does not get involved in Departmental policies or politics. Neither is a Fire Chaplain there for the purpose of proselytizing converts to his particular church.

A Fire Chaplain's primary focus is on the needs of the Fire Department and whatever situation the Firefighters encounter where the Chaplain may be of service to both the Firefighters and the community the Fire Department serves.

A part of the everyday life of any fire department is the coping with stressful situations that arise from encounters with battling fires and emergency situations. When people fall apart upon discovering they are burned out of their homes, or have lost all their belongings, or worse yet, have lost a loved one, how can Firefighters handle these demands for attention in addition to fighting the fire.

Westminster Fire Dept. prayers for Wednesday, September 4, 2013

Westminster Fire Dept. prayers for Wednesday, September 4, 2013

Heavenly Father,

We are brought together through your common call to service to our community.

As we gather for tonight’s meeting, grant us the wisdom for your vision for a better world and better community.

Nurture the faith of those tested by illness, grief, addiction, anxiety, pestilence, or liberals. Give them a spirit of endurance.

Heavenly Father, whose compassion never fails; we commend to you those who mourn, especially the friends and families of Baltimore Co. Police Officer Jason Schneider of Manchester, who was killed in the line of duty last Wednesday, August 28, 2013. The 13-year-veteran of the force was shot and killed delivering a warrant.

I worked many years with his mother-in-law, Shelly Fulton, when we both worked for the city of Westminster. We say a special prayer for her and her family as well.

We Pray and ask the Lord…for the protection of our military personnel, law enforcement, firefighters and EMS personnel and their families.

Thank you for being the constant source of wisdom, courage, and perseverance.

Keep us centered on your path of righteousness… Stay safe. Amen
