In addition to examining what went wrong during the December 2010 Carmel fire disaster, State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss looked at how fire authorities functioned in the first half of 2011.

The report contains a damning list of failures.

The Comptroller found that many fire stations did not carry out training sessions as specified by instructions from the Fire and Rescue Service, and not all fire fighters took part in training sessions that were held.

Even fire stations situated in areas that have high-rise building areas, train stations, and industrial areas failed to train for scenarios involving the unique challenges of their areas.
