Sirens were wailing and the red lights were flashing brightly on Wednesday night in Parksville.

There was no major emergency happening, but rather a parade that was held by the different fire departments in the Parksville Qualicum Beach area, along with Oceanside RCMP and BC Ambulance, to honour the frontline health care workers at Oceanside Health Centre.
