Sarasota County’s Fire Station 3, the county’s first fire station built in compliance with Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design green-building standards, will hold a grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony at 9 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 10.
Located at 47 N. Adams Drive, St. Armands, the facility is staffed by four full-time firefighter/paramedics and firefighter/emergency technicians.
The 5,443-square-foot building includes green features such as a system to capture rainwater to clean apparatus and fill fire-suppression tanks, solar-water heating, energy-efficient appliances and native Florida landscaping.
The old St. Armands fire station was torn down in December 2007. Construction of the new building began in 2008. The station’s firefighters operated out of the Lido Beach Pavilion until the new building was completed in late October.
