Parksville Fire Rescue


Parksville Fire Rescue has proudly served our community since 1942. Paid on-call volunteers and career firefighters provide fire and emergency response services in the Parksville Fire Protection Area. Firefighters are highly skilled professionals who value integrity, honesty, selflessness, commitment, courage, and are hardworking and family oriented. The Parksville Fire Protection Area encompasses the City of Parksville and contract areas within the Regional District of Nanaimo which include San Pareil, Morningstar, Columbia Beach, French Creek, and the Fourneau Road, Wildgreen, and Martindale Road areas. The population of the fire protection area is about 20,000, increasing substantially in the summer months.

We respond to about 800 calls annually: structure fires, rescues, motor vehicle incidents, medical assistance, and public service requests. We rely on the commitment of paid on-call volunteer firefighters dedicated to public safety and community service. With the growth and development in our region, recruitment and retention of volunteer firefighters continues to be a challenge for Parksville Fire Rescue. Consider joining our dedicated team of volunteer paid on-call firefighters.
