The first shelters were built in 1958, adjacent to Operation Kadesh. 11 of these shelters were underground. Over time, additional shelters of the same model were built and in later stages upper shelters were built, one of which serves as the settlement’s headquarters during an emergency.
The shelters are numbered, and each shelter has a responsible team whose job it is to fulfill the decisions and procedures, under the command of the current security coordinator and the regional commander
The population in the kibbutz is divided by regions, and each shelter manager receives an ordered list of the residents who will enter the shelter in an emergency and will be under his responsibility.
Decisions regarding entering the shelter and staying there during an emergency are made by the settlement’s security team.
