We have mentioned the emergency vehicle that The Fellowship is donating to Jerusalem in response to the violence facing the city and the nation of Israel. Today, The Jerusalem Post reports on how Jerusalem's mayor, Nir Barkat, says this technology will help keep the people of the Holy City safe:
According to Barkat, the mobile unit will assist police in emergency situations, and be utilized as a security hub for the many sports and cultural events that regularly take place in the city.
Barkat said the mobile unit features hi-tech specifications gleaned from Israel Police, Fire and Rescue Services and Magen David Adom’s emergency medical service teams’ mobile units.
“I would like to thank Rabbi Eckstein and the IFCJ’s hundreds of thousands of donors throughout the world, who steadfastly stand with Jerusalem in times of need, helping us protect Israel’s national and municipal home fronts,” the mayor said.
“During the current wave of violence that we are experiencing, the help is in the form of a mobile command center that will enable the city to provide real-time responses during emergencies and crisis situations when the speed and efficiency of the response is critical.”
