The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

Essex Fire and Rescue Service BMW motorcycle
Taken on 18th June 2009, this is the new Essex Fire and Rescue Service BMW motorcycle. Not a front line appliance, it is being used to promote 'bike safety' as part of a joint police and fire initiative to reduce RTCs. None the less it is a 'bit different' as far as UK Fire Brigades are concerned.
