Parksville Fire Drive-by for Milestone Memories
Posted: Apr 16, 2020
The Parksville Volunteer Fire Department would love to help you celebrate a milestone memory such as an anniversary, wedding or birthday. We recognize that living day-to-day with restrictions resulting from COVID-19 orders is stressful and challenging for all of us and then add an important event into the mix and it becomes even more difficult for families wishing to celebrate with friends and family. 

Parksville firefighters are offering to drive-by your home to help residents celebrate in a special way and promise to delight with loud noises and flashing lights. Here's what you need to do to book a drive-by of a fire truck for your milestone memory. 

  • Email your request to fire@parksville.ca . Please include "PVFD Drive-by Request" in the subject line of your email.
  • Person's name, age, address and milestone event  - Please note, birthday drive-bys are for kids ages 12 and under or 75 and older for young-at-heart)
  • Day and time - we do prefer daytime drive-bys due to staff availability.

Please note drive-bys could be subject to delay should fire/rescue incidents occur during your time. As well, milestone memory drive-bys are booked on a first-come, first-serve basis and the program will end on May 31.

We hope to help our residents create lasting memories for kids, seniors and families within the Parksville Fire Protection Area.
