The Needville Fire Department received four salvaged vehicles from State Farm to assist in the department’s extrication training set for May 19.

The training will be a multi-city event in partnership with personnel from Needville, Beasley, Pleak, and Fairchilds fire departments attending the class.

The four vehicles provided are newer and allow firefighters to train on up-to-date materials and technologies, such as multiple airbags, high-strength steel, and sophisticated electronics.

Fire departments seek out this training not only to save crash victims lives but to protect the lives of first responders, too, said David Luedeke, training officer with the Needville department.
