Of which firefighting is only one element of many that will be extremely overtasked. What about contingency plans - for emergency medical services, medical transport, medical and morgue facilities, doctors, police command and control, utilities- and the physical resources to support them...even provisions for emergency food and water. All these are critical for a population to weather, minimize, and survive the impact of a war...or even a natural catastrophe of epic porportion. Issuing gas masks just doesn't hack it. The most pragmatic and promising path toward Israel's security and future prosperity is a comprehensive peace with its neighbors, pretty much along the lines of the Arab peace offer, which would not only provide a unified regional front against its greatest perceived threat, but it would also eventually open avenues of trade and cultural cooperation which would likely bring a blossoming to the Israeli economy. But then, the current Israeli leadership isn't necessarily known for its pragmatism and foresight, so let's just hope they're smart enough not to start any wars.
