Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu announced Wednesday that within 10 days a law will be implemented to create a national firefighting force.

Speaking at a local authorities conference at the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzilya, Netanyahu said that local authorities are not capable of managing the fire service and therefore a national force is required.

In addition, the prime minister instructed his military secretary, Maj.-Gen. Yohanan Loaker to present in the coming days a proposal to establish an aerial firefighting force to deal with large-scale wildfires.
