The Parksville Volunteer Fire Department was established in 1942 in response to a threat of attacks from Japan during World War II.
The Fire Hall was built in 1943 by volunteers. A pump was supplied by the government under the Air Raid Precaution Program, and a 1929 Graham delivery truck was used to haul the pump. The pump was later replaced by a 1950’s Ford Pumper fire truck.
The original pump and fire truck are on display in the fire hall.
