Rescue Team Training

Creating Life Saving First Response Units

90% of major disaster event survivors where saved by ordinary people that just happened to be at the scene before emergency teams arrived.  Thanks to these proactive and clear thinking individuals, lives were saved during very chaotic situations. They possessed enough skills and confidence to act quickly and decisively.

Mission Concept

It is our mission is to create and equip semi-professional first responder teams with solid, practical tools aimed at saving lives and minimizing casualties during a catastrophic event or crisis.



  • These Communal First Responder teams will acquire the basic skills of:

    • Search and rescue

    • Crisis management

    • Emotional and physical first aid

All based on the IDF vast knowledge and experience.

  • The Communal First Responder teams will:

  •  provide the initial response and take control over the event, with the goal of saving lives and stabilizing the situation until the

  •  arrival of professional first responders.

  •  learn how to collect critical information and deliver it to the FD commander as it arrives.

  •  be able to join and assist the professional teams on sight.

  •  increase the community’s sense of confidence and, with that, a larger sense of worth of its individuals.
