Chevrolet is donating 300 vehicles damaged by water during Superstorm Sandy for use in training first responders in Georgia.

Detroit-based General Motors Co. announced Thursday that the cars, crossovers and SUVs would go to Guardian Centers in Perry, Ga.

The vehicles are expected to help provide a realistic environment to simulate real-world incidents and natural disasters.

Guardian Centers has a training center at a former Northrop Grumman plant. The vehicles will be used in conjunction with training exercises related to searches, traffic congestion in emergency situations, counter terrorism, public order and mass casualties.
