History of the Brigade.
The Parkerville Brigade was initially known as the Stoneville / Parkerville Brigade. Meetings were held at the Parky pub and the fire fighting vehicle was a Landrover. The Landrover was kept at the FCO's place until a small shed was built beside the Parkerville Hall to house it. The Brigade saw the need for a large water carrying vehicle. An old ex-army international truck was purchased with funds raised by the Brigade and converted into a tanker.
The Parkerville Fire Station was built by a small but dedicated band of fire fighters and was opened on 11-7-1981. The Parkerville Fire Station underwent major extensions in 1988. The station now boasted a two bay facility for fire fighting vehicles and a large administration area which contains a communications room and office.
In 1996 a small extension was made to the vehicle bays to accommodate the arrival of our new structural tanker. In 2005 the Parkerville Brigade acquired two new vehicles, a Light Tanker and a 3:4 Urban (three thousand litre, four wheel drive tanker equipped for structural fires).
