​​ The central design for the entryway of Fire Station 32 is meant to show respect for firefighter's universal and historic symbol of protection, the Maltese cross.  Within this symbol is the Arizona flag.  Outside of this design, there are the elements of mountains, water, sky and sunlight that define this specific South Mountain station.  The water that flows in the bottom half of this design is meant to remind us of this area's agricultural history, allowed by its irrigation system.  The flames surrounding the central Maltese cross are meant to be a reminder of the dangerous and unpredictable element that our firefighters bravely face.
