Kevin Davison to speak at 6th Annual “Hope for Heroes” Gala
Emergency Chaplain Group, a nonprofit organization that offers crisis chaplaincy services to emergency service personnel and their families, has announced the keynote speaker for its 6th annual Hope for Heroes gala on Saturday, November 4 at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott & Convention Center.
The keynote speaker for the event will be Canadian-born singer/songwriter Kevin Davison, who was internationally recognized for his recording of “When Those Sirens Have Gone,” a tribute to First Responders who have encountered post-traumatic stress disorder and other issues as a result of their daily experiences. Davison himself is a former First Responder.
“We are honored to have as our keynote speaker a man who has lived firsthand what our own First Responders have gone through, making him a perfect choice to educate gala attendees and members of the public about our mission,” said J.C. “Skip” Straus, BCC, and founder/CEO/Senior Chaplain of Emergency Chaplain Group. Past keynote speakers have included world-famous comedian and author David Naster and author of the book and subject of the motion picture 90 Minutes in Heaven: A True Story of Death and Life, Don Piper.
Emergency Chaplain Group, founded in 1998, is a group of specially trained chaplains who respond to the needs of the first responder community both on-scene and “behind-scene,” with an emphasis on Critical Incident Stress and Post Traumatic Stress services. The services offered by the group are without regard to religious affiliation (or lack thereof).
