Today's drill

.

Here's one of the shelters in one of the schools in town (Meitar).


It is adjoining the classrooms, as you can see.
.
 The Education Ministry, in cooperation with the army's  Home Front Command, rescue services, and local councils, held a drill in Israel’s schools and kindergartens this morning. 


Here is my video of the air raid siren.
You see a big public bomb shelter next to the municipal pre-kindergarten in my neighborhood, but the kids have there own fortified room inside their own building.  Which is a good thing since here we have only one minute to take cover from any in-coming rockets from Gaza.

It certainly looks sturdy.

So scary to live where it's necessary to have bomb shelters! I hope you guys don't have many occasions to use them.

As weak as we are getting we may wish our schools had them.

OH gracious, Dina! This is so scary for the kids. To think we only had tornado drills.

I wish our world were such that children did not have to grow up with drills such as these but, sadly, that is the reality of today's world.
