Fire rescue services show improvement post Carmel fire

Many improvements have been instituted to fire rescue services in the past six years, following the Carmel forest fire in 2010 in which 44 people died, according to Brig.- Gen. (ret.) Meir Elran, senior researcher and director of the home front program at the Institute for National Security Studies (INSS).

Elran spoke to The Jerusalem Post on Thursday about the lessons learned from the Mount Carmel fire – in which most of those killed were Prison Service guards on their way to evacuate a prison – and the changes made to fire rescue services in its wake.
