Educational institutions (training school children): Training school children takes place in conjunction with the Ministry of Education. Classes being trained are presented with a 5-lesson unit in the course of which various types of emergencies are examined along with the appropriate ways to cope with them. Furthermore, the educational system and the Home Front Command hold an annual national drill in all educational institutions in the country. Holding the drill constitutes the climax of any school’s planning for emergencies of various kinds.
Factories: The Home Front Command, in conjunction with various government ministries and various bodies of national infrastructure, offers courses for training personnel to be in charge of civil defense in industrial plants and factories. Courses for workers and designated factory teams is also done by factories’ requests and with prior coordination.
People with special needs: The Home Front Command offers training in various institutions and centers for the deaf, the blind, people with various disabilities, the elderly, new immigrants, and more. The training methods and coordination for special needs are determined in conjunction with the Commission on Equality in the Ministry of Justice and with the help of the training faculty in those institutions.
Organizations and companies: Training organizations and companies as groups of people that might have to cope with emergencies together is done at the request of the organizations and companies and with prior coordination. The training covers early preparations, assigning roles among the workers, and preparing the workplace and offices, and even includes training workers for the home preparations that each and every one of them must undertake.
Hospital personnel: The Home Front Command offers training in hospitals in order to improve staff preparedness to function in emergencies, and to continue to respond to and help those who are in the hospital during such times.
Institutional staffs: Training institutional staffs is done similarly to training the residents, in order to ensure effective coping of the latter in an emergency under the organization and control of the staff. Training covers early preparations, assigning roles among the staff and the residents, and physical preparation of the site. These training sessions also include training for school and kindergarten personnel, security aides, and principals.
