Coral Springs, Florida – After being awarded 2021 Chaplain of the Year, the Coral Springs City Commission recognized Reverend Ronald Perkins on Dec. 1.
Rev. Perkins was chosen by the Federation of Fire Chaplains, an international fellowship of Fire-Rescue Chaplains after his peers selected him for reflecting the energy, drive, understanding, and compassion necessary to serve as an elite emergency services chaplain and for going above and beyond in his service to others.
Rev. Perkins has worked for the Coral Springs-Parkland Fire Department since 2017, serving as a public safety chaplain since 2009.
Perkins has extensive experience and education in workplace chaplaincy, critical incident stress management (CISM), and crisis negotiation.
Rev. Perkins serves on the Broward County CISM Team and numerous health and safety committees within the departments he supports.
“We are fortunate to have Rev. Perkins as a member of our team and are proud to recognize him for this well-deserved and honorable award,” said Fire Chief Michael McNally. “This recognition is a testament to his selfless dedication to the welfare of first responders and exemplifies the important role he plays within our organization.”
