Dozens of police cars, fire trucks, ambulances and other emergency vehicles with blaring sirens departed Patrick Street Plaza about 6 p.m. Wednesday.
The parade was part of the Safety Expo this week in Charleston.
The parade route followed Kanawha Boulevard to Clendenin Street and on to the Charleston Civic Center, the location of the Safety Expo.
Emergency vehicles then lined up near the Civic Center, so members of the public could get a good look at them.
The expo runs Wednesday through Saturday.
