Old fire hall
This building was opened by James Rollo in 1970, and served as Gabriola’s north fire hall until 2013.
We had to build a new hall because this old building didn’t meet current safety regulations, and making expensive renovations to bring it up to standards wasn’t a good use money. The building was also inadequate for Gabriola’s current needs in many ways.
In 2012, construction began on Gabriola’s new Fire Hall Number 1. That is now our main hall.
The old fire hall is used for training purposes.
