An EMS parade unlike any others. International attendances, lots of sirens, great people and so on. This is the Rallye Rejviz (parade of 2018) :)
More below (about the vehicles & where they're from; what the Rallye Rejviz is; other Rallye Rejviz video links and some final words).
HOW MANY VEHICLES AND WHERE ARE THEY FROM?
I counted around 75 different emergency vehicles which passed me. Note that I did not count those which had only temporary magnetic mounted lights which I assume were for the parade only.
The teams are from 13 different countries which are Czechia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Canada, Greece, Cyprus, Japan, Hungary, United Kingdom, Poland, Estonia, Norway and Austria.
Unfortunately & of course not all the teams come with their own vehicles. Most surprising for me was that team London arrived with their own ambulance which was awesome to see (they drove around 20h btw)!
WHAT IS THE RALLYE REJVÍZ?
The Rallye Rejviz basically is an international competition between various teams from several countries. They participate in different scenarios and judges see how well they handle them. At the end it's not just a competition but it's also a learning process for everybody since they can learn from each other and different systems or find interesting ideas for their system. Of course there is a great atmosphere which everybody loves (I have not met any person or any team which was disappointed) :)
There are usually around 3 days of competitions and Saturday (at least this year) they had the final results announced in Jesenik and went on the 1.5 - 2h long parade which is full of blasting lights & sirens! Afterwards they party around at the hotel :)
The event takes place each year in May.
