Hillsborough County Chapter

Since January 2017, multitudes of events have been conducted that impacted the lives of our First Responders and Military Veterans throughout the Hillsborough County area. The list below are some of the highlights from these incredible three years. The list include opportunities to train, mentor, speak, and provide a ministry of presence through visitation at work, home and the hospital. 

Pinellas County Chapter

The C2 Pinellas Chapter began in OCT 2020 and has already impacted the lives of the Largo Fire Department. From OCT to Dec, 2020, Chaplain Will Murphy, the C2 Chapter Director and CH Dan Horne, the newest C2 Chaplain, have ministered to over 250 Fire Rescue personnel, helped to support 9 First Responder Events, and have completed over 100 hours of personal development training to include the Chaplaincy Care Academy 101-301, Behavior Health Foundations, SAF-T training and CVI Program.
