Lev Echad - Today and Tomorrow
Lev Echad has operated thus far with a balanced budget based on donations. The organization operates today solely on a volunteer basis. It is led by a limited management and an operational headquarters based on volunteer coordinators who worked with the organization during various emergency events. We work both in improving organizational and operational infrastructure in the various municipalities and in the development of an operational doctrine, which we wish to impart to the various volunteer agencies across the country.
In light of lessons learned from previous emergency events, as well as the extent of challenges and risks that may arise in the region, we want to take our activities a significant step forward and turn the organization into a body that consistently and actively promotes the volunteer emergency preparedness issue. Therefore we have initiated the Emergency Civilian Training project, in which a small team of local coordinators will operate nationwide, daily, to promote key issues of preparedness for emergency.
Emergency Civilian Training - main points
Recruiting and training of 500 volunteer coordinators in college campuses across the country
Setting up small units of local coordinators linked with local authorities
Support of local authorities in building an operational model for volunteers in emergencies
Collaborating with the Ministry of Education's Youth and Society Administration in creating an operational model for volunteers in emergencies
Teaching the operational doctrine to voluntary bodies: preparing pre-military courses, youth groups, student councils and more
Creating an operational model for adult and retired volunteers
The total budget required in order to implement the project in 2013 is US $250,000 (details to be supplied upon request).
An additional budget of $200,000 is required in order to supply and deploy 2000 volunteers in case of a national emergency, in the first critical 5 days.
Any assistance would be appreciated.
