The Ramapo Police Department along with the Community Security Initiative recently organized a second training session for Rockland Hatzolah volunteers on a Sunday morning. This training aimed to confront the unsettling reality that the security situation in Israel may have repercussions beyond its borders, with reports suggesting that Palestinians are inciting sympathizers worldwide.
This increased sense of vigilance underscores the imperative for Jewish communities worldwide to remain alert, as they could potentially become targets. Monsey Scoop notes that, according to law enforcement agencies, there are no credible threats to Rockland County as of this evening.
The training session called “How to Prepare, Act, and Address Potential Injuries” was proficiently conducted by the Ramapo Police Department. This program, curated and presented by their firearms and tactics division, was in partnership with our school’s resource officer CRASE training program in collaboration with Ethan Erlich, the Regional Security Director of the Community Security Initiative. Additionally, in-house Hatzolah experts contributed their significant knowledge to ensure thorough emergency readiness.
The second session of this crucial training program occurred on Sunday morning and was was given to 60 members.
Members of Hatzolah who successfully completed the program were rewarded with a Belt-sized “Stop the Bleed Kit” and a certificate of training completion. These resources are intended to empower members with the necessary skills and tools to respond effectively in emergency situations, including potential terrorist incidents.
