GFP resistance to fixation

Dear all,
Of course GFP is a tool developped for living organisms studies, but 
I was still wondering if ever it could resist to some kind of 
treatment for fixation.
Indeed I have GFP tagged bacteria, and I look their localisation with 
confocal microscope but I d like to couple this with some more 
classical fluorescence microscopy which needs making thin cuts of 
fixed tissues. So is there a method that would allow me to fix 
without destroying GFP.
thanks in advance
