The Essex Fire Museum gives visitors the opportunity to take a fascinating look at the history of the Essex Fire Service, housing a collection of historic fire engines, firefighting equipment, uniforms and photographs.

Below are some of the many uniforms on display at the museum. Of specific interest is the World War Two (WWII) section consisting of a number of Auxiliary Fire Service (AFS) and Air Raid Precautions (ARP) uniforms.
