(Miami-Dade County, FL) --
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue (MDFR) will celebrate the grand opening of West Miami Station #40 on Friday, November 16, 2012, at 10 a.m., at 975 SW 62 Avenue.
The two-story, 4,658 square-foot facility will receive a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver Certification. This will make this station MDFR’s first green fire station. LEED-certified buildings conserve energy and water, which is healthier and safer for occupants, and reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions.
“This new station will help to increase service and improve response time and efficiency,” said Fire Chief William W. Bryson. “The opening of Station #40 will enable MDFR to continue to provide for the health, safety, and welfare of the residents of West Miami and its surrounding communities.”
