The fire museum of Kokkola inclues old equipment and other items from the Volunteer Fire Brigades of Kokkola and Kaarlela as well as from the Kokkola Fire Department.
The museum items vary from hand operated syringe pumps from 19th century to modern radio communication equipment of 22nd century. The museum also houses memorabilia and artifacts from the Volunteer Fire brigade of Kokkola. Also exhibited are several personal protective equipments from old fire suits to breathing apparatuses.
The museum also has two old fire engines; a Chevrolet from 1931, used by Kokkola Fire Department and a Land Rover Series 1 fire engine, used by the Volunteer Fire Brigade of Kaarlela. The vechiles are stored outside museum's premises due to lack of exhibition space.
