Vehicle Donations for Firefighter Training
As the cars we drive continue to evolve in terms of technology, they also evolve in how they are built to protect us. Did you know that the average vehicle built in 1975 contained only 4% high strength steel? Today this number is as high as 72%. With this additional level of safety comes new challenges for Firefighters as they try to rescue us after an accident has occurred. In addition to adding new equipment to meet those challenges, we need to continue our high quality training to stay up on new techniques and trends in auto extrication.
This is where you can help! If you have a vehicle that you would like to get rid of, running or not, we can use it to further our training.
If you are interested in donating a vehicle, please contact Fire Administration at [email protected] or (650) 522-7900.
