      “It’s Good to Get Gear When Things Are Calm”


      Lt.Colonel Lior Gabbai, head of the Home Front Command Protective Kit Replacement Division Gave INN details on the distribution of gas masks in Shfar’am, Tiberias, Hod Hasharon and Ra’anana. The operation is part of this week’s series of national emergency drills. “We have been distributing gas masks to the population for the last year-and-three-months. 35% of the population have already received protective kits. We distribute when conditions are calm. Today’s drill simulates emergency distribution, and we will hand out altogether 10,000 kits in the framework of the drill. We hope to distribute the 4 million kits by the end of the year, providing for 55% of the population. We will then get a budget for next year’s distribution operation”, said Gabbai.
