The Police and Crime Commissioner for Essex has met with the county's Fire and Rescue Service to discuss closer collaboration.
The government says that amalgamating emergency services and sharing resources will increase efficiency.
But the Fire Brigades Union says it's about cost cutting and could put the public at risk. The argument is that fire and rescue and police services work well together already.
It's looking at how, through closer collaboration - like shared buildings and management structures, this could be improved. But the fear is to what extent that amalgamation goes and whether it should be done under the governance of a Police and Crime Commissioner.

Two Coastguard helicopters, a lifeboat and two other vessels are currently dealing with a ship fire off the coast of Cromer.
The seven crew of the ship are currently still on board and trying to keep the fire under control. An additional Coastguard rescue helicopter from Humberside is on scene along with the Cromer RNLI Lifeboat.
The UK Coastguard received a mayday message, broadcast at 5.20 this morning to report that the vessel, which is carrying wheat to Rotterdam, had a fire in its accommodation.
"The crew are still on board the vessel and keeping the fire under control. However, we have a rescue helicopter hovering above as well as a lifeboat on scene so that, should the need arise, they can evacuate the ship.
"The Humberside Fire and Rescue fire fighting crew will be on scene soon and will assess the fire at that point.”
A mayday relay message was immediately broadcast and several vessels responded offering their assistance.
Two of these are now on scene with the vessel.
