Report: IAA investigator says firefighting squadron faulty
June 21, 2012 21:09

The firefighting squadron which was established following the Carmel fire is ineffective and could potentially cause safety issues, Channel 2 reported on Thursday, citing a report compiled by the main investigator at the Israel Airports Authority.

The report came a day after State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss released his report on the Carmel fire, criticizing fire authorities, as well as the political echelon for their handling of the disaster, in which 44 people were killed in December 2010.

"Pilot training, maintenance, and assessment of performance are below international standards," Channel 2 quoted the report on the firefighting squadron as saying.
