The Parksley Volunteer Fire Company Inc. administration, operational officers and Accomack County DPS “A” shift Fire medic Caleb Abbott have been working together to find a more affective way to decontaminate all the ambulances, fire equipment, and living areas of the station to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Abbott found a video online of another agency using a paint gun, an SCBA bottle, and CaviCide # 1. Abbott contacted President Fussell about this idea and he went and purchased the paint sprayer and a few fittings to make this all possible. As you can see on the video this truly works well. It places a fine mist on everything, it is safe to use on all equipment, and it does not soak anything. The mist gets into places your everyday use of disinfectant wipes do not get. Thank you Caleb for bringing this idea to our attention and to Fire medic Joseph Eller for using it for the first time. This idea will hopefully help protect our DPS staff, Volunteers , and any patient that is in need of medical attention.
On Sunday March 16th 2020, training officer John Carter Parks and Norfolk Firemedic Spencer Davis did a forceable entry drill at the firehouse using the Eastern Shore Regional’s Fire Training Centers forceable entry prop. We had several members in Attendance and nice dinner to follow it up. Thank you to all that played a part in the drill and dinner and to all the members who came out to both.....
also would like to thank Ryan Kellam for coming out and fit testing out members.
We would like to thank Delmar Fire Department for allowing Tanker 74 to be brought to Parksley for our members to look at and some even drive her as we begin the process of replacing Tanker 7-7 (Delmar’s old tanker). This is a very nicely built truck.
They even caught a run to Onancock while down here today, Station 9 had two field/brush fires and alerted Parksley for a tanker response so Tanker 7-7 and Tanker 74 (Delmar’s new tanker) responded to the call.
Again the officers and membership would like to thank you for taken the time to bring Tanker 74 to us.

This evening at 1714 hours, fire stations from Tasley, Onancock, Parksley, Melfa and Bloxom as well as Accomack County DPS were dispatched to a reported working residential fire on Back Street in Accomac. First arriving units reported fire visible from the D side of the structure with smoke visible on Division 1 and Division 2. Great teamwork on the part of the firefighters on the scene resulted in a quick knockdown and extinguishment of visible fire as well as rapid evacuation of smoke from the historic home. Interior fire damage was confined to one room, with some exterior damage. The fire is believed to have been caused by an electrical problem. Chief 8 (Beall) had command. Units cleared in about an hour and a half.

Sunday family dinner #firehousefamily
All our apparatus clean and ready to go again - houseful of volunteers and paid staff working together to help show off our rigs - NOW FOR SUNDAY DINNER 😊👩🚒
Assisted Station 6 with fire alarm earlier on this New Years Eve. Everyone please be safe out there tonight.
Bloxom and Parksley responded to fire alarm call. No fire found.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
Be safe and smart this New Year's Eve please
On Sunday’s for about 2 months now we have been doing “Sunday Dinners” at the firehouse that was initially started by Daryn & Vicky Fussell to help build moral, promote members & their families to hang around the station for that family like environment, let’s just say its been a huge success, we always invite Bloxom’s DPS crew and on occasion a couple volunteers from Bloxom also come which we welcome that as well and of course our own DPS staff, this evening Duane Read and myself planned the meal out because Daryn and Vicky were out of town, we had Chicken buffalo pasta, and chicken Alfredo, that’s right even the career staff are pitching into this, the meals are paid for by whomever attends and it’s on a donation bases if you can good if you can’t that’s fine to. We have probably averaged around 20 people each week, we are very grateful for how well this has worked out.
This week a new spin was added to it:
Willie & Jennifer brought about 12 laser tag kits and we played this for about a hour or so and it was a blast had by everyone (Ryan Tilghman was the winner tonight) .... can’t wait to see what we do next week or if Ryan can maintain is winning status.
We will be conducting our annual door to door food drive to benefit Food Bank of the Eastern Shore, tomorrow 12/16 starting at 6pm within the Parksley town limits. We will accept drop offs at the station as well if you live outside of town. If you leave it out for us, please leave lights onhttps://images.app.goo.gl/1NAeG4LB3MG78pFK6
