When Follow That Fire Engine needed to add New Zealand to it's itinerary, Hawk Ellery OS were called in to handle the freight and hence had a hand in helping this special project achieve the Guinness Book of Records for the Longest Journey By a Fire Engine milestone – 31,663 miles!

"Follow That Fire Engine is an awe inspiring expedition that has never been attempted before. A crew of friends plan to achieve Guinness World Record status by circumnavigating the globe… in a fire engine!


“Follow That Fire Engine is dedicated to the memory of Garth Moore, who passed away on 18th July 2009 at the age of 63, after a brave battle with lung cancer. Garth was a Fire Fighter at Wimborne Fire Station in Dorset and dedicated his life to fighting fires and saving the lives of others, over the course of his 33 years in service.

“His son Steve Moore is Follow That Fire Engine’s expedition leader. The goal is to raise money and awareness for three charities; Macmillan Cancer Support, The Fire Fighters Charity and The Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation.”
