Crowds feel the heat in Johnstone as Fire Engine Rally returns to the town

visit paisley

Thousands of people turned out in Johnstone on Saturday to see fire engines, past and present, showcased in the town centre.

The day kicked off with emergency vehicles from across the years parading from Johnstone Fire Station into Houston Square, where they remained for the afternoon, giving everyone the chance to climb on board and learn how firefighting has advanced through the years.

The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service undertook several demonstrations throughout the day, showing people what the impact can be when a chip pan bursts in to flames.
The event was hosted by Renfrewshire Council in partnership with the Scottish Fire and Rescue Heritage Trust.
Renfrewshire’s Provost Lorraine Cameron said: “The Fire Engine Rally is always a highlight of our events calendar and a firm favourite for the people of Johnstone.
“Events like this really benefit the local communities as they bring visitors in to the town and increase footfall to local traders.
Renfrewshire’s packed events schedule continues for the rest of the year, so make sure you check out what’s coming up next!”
