Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch called for all emergency services, including the beleaguered Fire and Rescue Service, to be centralized and operated under the auspices of his ministry during a speech at the Herzliya Interdisciplinary Center on Wednesday night.

"The time has come to gather all emergency services under one roof - the Public Security Ministry," Aharonovitch added.

The minister added that there was no need for a special committee of investigation to be formed, saying that "we should simply apply the conclusions that are already on our desks," referring to the report by State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss released on Wednesday.
