Parksville Fire Department launches new website

New site includes department news, photos and recruitment information

The Parksville Fire Department recently launched a new website which will provide residents of the Parksville Fire Protection Area with up-to-date news and information about the department.

Parksvillefirerescue.ca is mobile friendly, has a new modern look and an easy to navigate menu. The new website includes much more information including latest department news and information, recruitment, fire and life safety tips, links to the department’s social media sites, photo gallery and department history.

As well, the new site features a members’ only section which will be used by the department’s firefighters for training and to facilitate internal communication.

“The Parksville Fire Department is pleased to launch this new site to be able to share news with our community,” said Fire Chief Marc Norris. “We hope residents will take a look around the site and pass along any comments.”

Anyone interested in the Parksville Fire Department’s paid-on-call firefighting opportunities should check out the new site.
