Carmel Fire Results in New National Radio Network


A new national radio network will be formed connecting all emergency media teams, fire and police units throughout the country. The announcement of the new network comes after Wednesday's release of the official report regarding the Carmel fire disaster of 2010. Forty-four people were killed and thousands of trees were burned. Two Druze teenagers from Isfiya in northern Israel were arrested by police for the incident. One told police that they had inadvertently started the fire while smoking in the woods.
