Vehicle Donations for Firefighter Training

SMFD donate car

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 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 people after an accident has occurred. In addition to adding new equipment to meet those challenges, the Department needs to continue high-quality training to stay up-to-date 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, firefighters can use it to further their training. Visit this webpage or contact fire@cityofsanmateo.org or 650-522-7900 for more information.
