The Israel Prison Service responded to criticism it faced in the State Comptroller report on the Carmel fire released Wednesday, stating that the organization understands the importance of the report and “will use it as a tool for improving our organizational readiness ahead of dealing with future challenges.”

The statement also said that the IPS has over the past year-and-a-half carried out a wide range of changes to improve their operational readiness, including the formation of regional command centers, updating command protocol, training for dealing with fires, and improving communications equipment. They have also launched a foundation to support families of those who fell in the Carmel fire, according to the press release.
