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.
