Israel's President Reuven Rivlin spoke with the commissioner of the country's Fire and Rescue Services on Friday, thanking them for their service, Maariv reported.

Rivlin expressed his deep appreciation for the efforts of the fire and rescue to Rabbi Tafsar Dedi Simchi, following the continued blazes that have broken out across the country due to an extreme heatwave."I thank the fire fighters on behalf of all the people for their deep devotion and commitment. We have seen events of this kind in developed countries and there are usually casualties or loss of life," he said, insinuating that there had been minimal casualties due to the quick response by the fire and rescue service.

The fire commissioner thanked the president for strengthening the fighters, and promised that he would make every effort to put an end to the continued fires in the near future.
