Fire Hall

Share:

The Parksville Volunteer Fire Department was established in 1942 in response to a threat of attacks from the west during World War II.

The pump was supplied by the government under the Air Raid Precaution program and a 1929 Graham delivery truck was purchased by the locals to tow this pump. The Fire Hall was built in 1943 totally by volunteers. Later #2 Fire Engine, a 1950 Ford was purchased as the previous equipment was very aged.

This 1950’s Ford Pumper fire truck is on display at the Parksville Museum and, along with an original water pump, is used in the annual Parksville parade.
