Muscatine’s new fire station is going green.

The new station should open towards the end of July. Those involved in the project are hoping that the building will receive Silver LEED Certification.

Some of the building’s green features include bike racks, concrete surfaces that reflect sunlight and heated floors.

Additionally, the fire station’s new location should significantly improve response times.
