The author reflects on the need for fire chiefs and administrators in the United States to embrace sustainable design principles for their stations. Architect Larry Enyart had talks with the author about sustainable buildings that use and do not hurt natural resources, that contribute to ecology and that use recycled materials such as recycled foam and steel or concrete and fly-ash combination. A Station Style Conference on sustainable designs will be held in Phoenix, Arizona in May 2006.
