Israel launches first National Fire Protection Association

Less than one week after brush fires engulfed large swaths of the country, Israel on Thursday is launching its first National Fire Protection Association, based on a successful American model created to teach fire safety, and minimize fatalities and damages.

Shmuel Netanel, who served as Israel’s first fire protection engineer, is the chairman of the newly formed Israeli Fire Protection Association, which is partnering with the Building Engineer’s Association, and seeking to work with the National Association of Builders.
