Three thousand two-way radios distributed to localities in Judea, Samaria, and the Jordan Valley
In recent weeks, a project to distribute walkie-talkies to security officers, emergency stand-by teams and security personnel in Judea and Samaria was launched.
The device will allow every security officer to report and place on-time calls to the IDF and other security forces in the area during a security incident, and to synchronize this with the other relevant emergency and security agencies.
Over the last few years, ever since the cessation of the use of MIRS devices, a critical gap developed in the need for the preservation of human life, with communication between the military and civilians during emergencies running into lapses and imprecision.
Following the hard work of the Yesha Council security chief, Shlomo Vaknin, in collaboration with the Home Front Command, the Central Command, the Judea and Samaria Division and the Security Divisions of the councils, special radios were adapted and purchased for the subject.
At the inauguration of the project that took place at the Home Front Command, Shlomo expressed his appreciation to all the partners, and said: “I thank the IDF and the security forces for recognizing throughout the entire process the importance of a full-proof connection between the localities and the security forces, leading to working with us on the project and seeing through the distribution of the devices. This equipment will lead to the management of a security incident in a better way and will constitute another significant step in ensuring the security of the residents of Judea, Samaria, and the Jordan Valley."
