EVP, in collaboration with the State of Israel, is forming a network of Congregations Emergency Response TEAMs trained and certified to respond in Israel during times of crisis.
To fulfill our mission, EVP is seeking to partner with Synagogues, Churche, communities and organizations who are concerned for the safety of Israel and her people and establish emergency response teams along 4 different tracks: Firefighting, Medical, Community Services and Mass-Feeding Services.
In order to train the responders for their tasks during emergencies, each volunteer is required to participate in training programs targeting their volunteer service category. This training teaches volunteers the acceptable standards of personal and operational readiness and acquaints them with new or revised protocols and/or procedures.
Trainings will be given at regional training centers conducted by teams of EVP certified instructors from the US and Israel. Training consists of classroom lectures, practical exercises, and drills on various scenarios that responders may encounter whilst deployed in Israel.
All responders who deploy to Israel must be certified by the Israeli Goverment and EVP, which means they have completed all required training, hold valid certification(s) according to their professional status, and are ready for deployment.
This training will teach volunteers the acceptable standards of personal and operational readiness in Israel and to acquaint them with new or revised protocols and/or procedures. Training will be conducted by teams of EVP certified instructors from the US and Israel held in state or municipality-recognized emergency training centers with the emergency equipment necessary for effective training, plus simulation facilities in some cases. Training will consist of classroom lectures, practical exercises, and drills on various scenarios.
Volunteers will develop/maintain deployment readiness and allow EVP to assess volunteer readiness for future deployment.
Local USA trained personnel certified by the Government of Israel and EVP to work in the Israeli emergency services and their community partnered cities in Israel.
