EVP Operational Team

The EVP team consists of some of Israel’s most experienced and dedicated professionals in the various areas of emergency aid. All have an immense amount of knowledge derived from their experience in emergency situations in Israel.
Many of the team personnel have experience on relief expeditions to other parts of the world suffering from major humanitarian emergencies. All team members have served in key positions in Israeli Emergency Services and know all too well what is demanded and needs to be done in times of crisis.
Our instructors belong to the emergency services that volunteers will be working with. They will ensure that EVP volunteers get the best training possible to prepare them the tasks that await them.
