Volunteer Fire Fighter Program
Supporting Israel's Fire Fighters
The Volunteer Fire Fighter program consists of a corps of volunteers who will be the first line of defense particularly in the remote communities of Northern and Southern Israel. These communities are often hard for Israel Fire & Rescue Services to reach in times of emergency. Currently, 2,000 professional fire fighters protect the population of 7.5 million, which is hardly sufficient to properly save lives during peacetime, and nearly impossible in times of emergency. The 3,500 volunteer fire fighters (both adults and youth) play the critical role of first responders, providing initial relief and essential rescue services until professionals reach the scene.
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT & GEAR CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE: $1,800
