Like instead of firing the RemoteEvent for a server script to run something, we do the opposite.
It appears from your question that you think a RemoteEvent can only fire by a local script asking the server to accomplish a task but not the other way around.
Both remotes (RemoteFunction & RemoteEvent) are capable of having a local script tell the server to accomplish a task and having the server tell a local script to accomplish a task. However, the RemoteEvent is capable of having all clients (the computer running the local script) do a task the server asked for.
Due to your question referring to RemoteEvents specifically, I will give you an example of a RemoteEvent causing the server to tell a local script to accomplish a task:
--Script local Players = game:GetService("Players") local welcomePlayerEvent = Instance.new("RemoteEvent") welcomePlayerEvent.Parent = game.ReplicatedStorage welcomePlayerEvent.Name = "WelcomePlayerEvent" local function onPlayerAdded(player) welcomePlayerEvent:FireClient(player) end Players.PlayerAdded:Connect(onPlayerAdded) --Local script local Players = game:GetService("Players") local ReplicatedStorage = game:GetService("ReplicatedStorage") local player = Players.LocalPlayer local welcomePlayerEvent = ReplicatedStorage:WaitForChild("WelcomePlayerEvent") local playerGui = player:WaitForChild("PlayerGui") local welcomeScreen = Instance.new("ScreenGui") welcomeScreen.Parent = playerGui local welcomeMessage = Instance.new("TextLabel") welcomeMessage.Size = UDim2.new(0, 200, 0, 50) welcomeMessage.Parent = welcomeScreen welcomeMessage.Visible = false welcomeMessage.Text = "Welcome to the game!" local function onWelcomePlayerFired() welcomeMessage.Visible = true wait(3) welcomeMessage.Visible = false end welcomePlayerEvent.OnClientEvent:Connect(onWelcomePlayerFired)
The above example is taken directly from the Roblox Developer Hub. If you would like to learn more about Remotes, such as RemoteFunctions yielding and RemoteEvents not yielding but being able to fire all clients, please check this link.
