Through SA’s program, 1-800-GOT-SCRAP, cars ready to be recycled for scrap metal are instead being collected and first sent to the North Net Fire Training Facility in Anaheim.

Firefighters will use the vehicles for training, learning how to extricate wounded passengers with the Jaws of Life and other rescue techniques.
