Ole' Glory At Fire Station #2 in Scottsdale, AZ

By

When considering which flag to share for the June Challenge, I thought it fitting to share a post of something sustainable.  After all, the American flag has been a sustainable "institution" since it was established as a national Flag on June 14, 1777.  

 

Sustainability is a 3 legged stool, People, Profit and Planet.  Since the American flag sustains us, it is a faction of sustainability.  

 

Fire Station #2 is the first fire station in the US to be certified as LEED Platinum in 2009.  Platinum is the highest level of LEED certification available.  This fire station was an urban in-fill project and was designed by LEA Architects.  Fire Station #2 has won many awards for it's design as well as it's capability for active and passive features.  

 

LEED Certification includes the following features:  water efficiency; energy efficiency; local materials and resources; indoor environmental qualify; awareness and education; and location close to the public. 

 

What a wonderful tribute to public service by the city of Scottsdale for the first of MANY LEED certified fire stations.

Since 1985, Public Service Recognition week is the first week of May annually. 

Thank you to those in public service!  We appreciate you!

Hi, Jan.

The history of our flag is rich and memorable. And it's always interesting to learn from different sources. 

This is the first I learned about the LEED Certified Fire Stations. I appreciate that you share with us this important cause.  Interesting!

I remember when it was first certified Greg Mona !  Since that time they've built quite a few more of them.  Not to diminish the flag's importance.  It's great to see a proud flag supporting our public servants!

Yes, it is rich and memorable Aura Alex .  Your post described the history and importance of our flag so well!  Mine was just referencing a building, but an educational building.    It was a challenge to provide enough information with a public building as there isn't a lot of information about flying the flag in front of public service types of buildings.  Anyway, thank you for commenting!

Jan Green - Scottsdale, AZ. If it's meaningful for you to share your post, it is significant for me to learn what I didn't know. And I thank you for graciously supporting my posts for this challenge.
