      National Firefighting Authority to be Declared Monday

      Public Safety Minister Yitzhcak Aharonovitch will join Fire and Rescue Commander Shachar Ayalon, Monday, in declaring the establishment of the National Authority for Fire and Rescue Services.

      The serious Carmel Ridge Fire in December 2010 was the impetus for reform in fire and rescue services, leading to the passage, in August, of the law establishing the authority. Fire and rescue services have working feverishly on preparations for its implementation.
