Cool off with the Parksville Fire Department!
Posted: Jul 9, 2019
Council recently gave approval to a Parksville Volunteer Fire Department initiative – pop-up or instant water parks! Fire Chief Marc Norris requested approval for the department to create two to four instant water parks over the summer where kids and kids at heart will have an opportunity to cool off by running through a misting spray from an aerial ladder truck and other fire hose appliances.

The Parksville Fire Department members are looking forward to the chance to engage with the community and be part of the fun. The pop-up water park is also an opportunity for residents and visitors to check out the fire engines and equipment, learn about fire safety and also talk to members about what it means to be a firefighter.

Upcoming pop-up water parks are family friendly and will be free to attend. Dates and locations will be posted to social media where we are also asking for suggestions from the public for preferred locations for the pop-up water parks.

Quote from Fire Chief Marc Norris:
“My thanks to Council for their endorsement of these instant water parks which promise to be great fun and something different for our community. We will monitor water supply conditions and look forward to hosting these events for our residents and visitors and building on the program in future years.”
