“We have a duty to those who put their lives on the line daily,” states, a newly formed service and website being stewarded by local Firefighter Chaplain Cole Massey to support first responders in Southeast Washington. “It is our desire to meet every call or need as it arises. Donations help provide First Responders with the support and care they deserve,” the website states. Free support will go to all first responders and their spouses in Walla Walla, Columbia and Umatilla counties. “The purpose of Southeast Chaplaincy is to meet first responders and their spouses where they are. What is their stress level and how can we help get that down? How do we lower the rate of first responder suicide, divorce and job burnout?”
