il and fire department presented certificates to five volunteer members on Monday. The members each put in more than 300 hours of training time to earn their NFPA 1001 (National Fire Protection Association), Fire Fighter II certificates.

Deputy fire chief Marc Norris said this is the standard most paid firefighters achieve.

“These members put in a tremendous amount of time and effort to complete not only this training but countless other hours of training and time responding to emergencies, which speaks to their dedication and commitment to both the Parksville Fire Department and the citizens of Parksville,” Norris said.
