Countless rescue and humanitarian aid missions in disaster regions all over the world have made the IDF experts in emergency relief. On May 15th, 2012, Israeli and U.S. forces held a joint emergency rescue drill. Together, they trained how to extract injured victims from a collapsed building, to clear paths through debris, and to navigate in the chaos that is left by a natural disaster. The IDF plans to hold similar drills each year with teams of the U.S. Armed Forces, in order to pass on their knowledge and prepare for future disasters.
