Green Fire Station Under Construction

Sarasota County has broken ground on its first green fire station.

The facility will use recycled materials, a high-performance roof system that reflects a great deal of solar energy, and high performance windows with glass that reduces solar heat gain.

This is the first fire station of its kind to be built green in Sarasota County but not the last. County officials say newly firehouses will be constructed to help protect the environment.
