Sirens and lights figure in parade

The Sooke Fire Rescue Service began protecting life and property in the Sooke community and neighbouring areas in 1913.

It this level of dedication and commitment to our neighbours that has shaped us in to who we are today.

Sooke’s first firehall was built across from the Evergreen Centre along Sooke Road at the vacant lot. The current firehall #1 was built in 1996 along with the municipal hall.

Come out and support Sooke Fire Rescue at our next event, and join in the celebration of our 100 years of community service.

On August 24 we will be hosting an Emergency Vehicle Parade and Show and Shine at John Phillips Memorial Park, 2201 Otter Point Road.

The parade will start at 10:30 am at SEAPARC Leisure Complex and proceed to John Phillips Memorial Park, where there will be food concessions, inflatable games and kids activities as well as emergency vehicles on display.

For more information, please contact Chief Steve Sorensen at 250-642-5422.
