Though founded less than 70 years ago, Israel is a country that has developed a formidable reputation for championing science, R&D, and precision technology. The Technion Institute of Technology, nicknamed “the MIT of Israel”, was founded in the 1920s by Albert Einstein, no less. Its young, innovative tech startups continue to attract the attention and investment of technology giants such as Google. And the Israeli Defense Forces are by and large regarded as one of the most technologically advanced and professional fighting forces on the planet. This last aspect of Israel – its military might – has developed at least in part as a consequence of the numerous wars and internal insurrections that the country has had to contend with during the course of its short existence.
Due to continual, porous instability along its borders, Israel has needed to adapt to the harsh likelihood of rocket attacks on its citizenry (from terrorists and from foreign entities). Given the fact that many of Israel’s self-proclaimed “enemies” have huge stockpiles of chemical and even biological weaponry that can be loaded onto rockets and fired deep into Israeli territory, the threat has become that much more perilous. Since rockets can be launched with little warning time for civilians to take cover in public air-raid shelters, Israeli public and private sector initiatives have taken it upon themselves to build individual fallout shelters for Israeli households. These fallout shelters come complete with modern safe room filtration technology that allows for safeguarding against chemical and biological agents.
While manufacturing giants like China and India might be cheaper markets to purchase parts for bio- and chemical-proof safe rooms, Israel’s emphasis on scientific precision and reliability has led it to buy safe room filtration systems from the U.S. and Canada. North American filtration systems perform reliably under pressure and aren’t victims to failure or to breakage, let alone to false advertising.
When it comes to something as surreal and life-threatening as a chemical or biological attack, no expense should be forgone in protecting the lives of innocent men, women, and children.
