Forming Your Congregation Response Team for Israel

In collaboration with the State of Israel, EVP is forming a network of 'Communitiy Emergency Response Teams' trained and certified for emergency deploymrnt to Israel.

To fulfill our mission, EVP is seeking to partner with Synagogues, Churches, 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 Professional Support Services.

EVP will train the volunteers who will play a vital role in protecting Israel, both in peace and in war. EVP provides different services during crises like:

  • Help maintain bomb shelters with food and water.
  • Help maintain municipal emergency supply depots.
  • Assist the National Water Authority operate water distribution centers.
  • Assistance to populations confined to bomb shelters or their homes.
  • Deploy EVP firefighters to Israel Fire stations responding to emergency call outs.
  • Deploy EVP medical teams to hospitals to assist emergency, triage and other departments in coping with the increased need for medical services.


Recognized by the State of Israel and by FEMA

Community teams who train with EVP will be recognized by the State of Israel as Emergency Responders and their training also certifies them as CERT Responders.

The training will teach volunteers the acceptable standards of personal and operational readiness in Israel and to acquaint them with new or revised protocols and procedures.

The 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 and will consist of classroom lectures, practical exercises, and drills on various scenarios.
