Mesa Fire Station 219 is the first City of Mesa building to be given LEED certification.

The station has solar panels, a solar hot water system, insulated concrete exterior walls and an insulated roof. The City received a $2 million grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to pay for many of the energy efficient items used to achieve LEED Gold certification.

LEED is a voluntary program that provides third-party verification of the design and construction of “green” buildings. LEED buildings are designed to lower operating costs, reduce waste sent to landfills, conserve energy and water, be healthier and safe for occupants and reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions.

The station is located at 3361 S. Signal Butte Road.
