President Barack Obama is to visit a state-of-the-art fire station in a Washington suburb on Friday.
The president will speak about the economy at Fire Station No. 5 in Arlington, Va. in the late morning.
He's expected to propose a new conservation program that would put veterans to work rebuilding trails, roads and levees on public lands. He's also expected to announce the administration will seek additional grant money for programs that allow local communities to hire more police officers and firefighters.
The Arlington County Fire Department says Station No. 5 is the first in the region to feature individual accommodations to better serve the increasing number of female firefighters. It's also a "green building," with many energy-saving features.
In the afternoon, Obama will attend a campaign event in Washington.
