dc.description.abstractIssues surrounding green construction and resource consumption are on the forefront of conservationists’ efforts. Unfortunately, very few fire departments have recognized the importance of implementing these measures into the creation of new fire stations. This study compares three different models of fire stations: traditional, modern and LEED certified. Through evaluation of factors like construction material reuse, energy efficiency, water conservation and native landscaping, the practicality and feasibility of green fire station construction is demonstrated. Additionally, it is shown that a small financial investment in the building phase results in fiscal and resource savings throughout the life of the conservation-focused fire station.en_US
