Equipment / Special equipment to fire and rescue services

The fire and rescue service are often the first on the scene of an accident involving injuries. Thanks to a Keren Yosef, Bet Shemesh firefighters were the first in Israel to undergo BLS training and received medical bags and defibibrillators. This initiative has already saved several lives and is used as a model for the rest of the country. The partnership has flourished with the ground breaking "Fire Safety Week" attracting over 5,000 children and adults a year (link). Special cutting saws, breathing apparatus and communications equipment have dramatically improved the chances of successful rescue operations.
