Arutz Sheva/Israel National News — Magen David Adom joined an international multi-casualty drill that featured three different scenes representing three different sized incidents on October 30.
As part of the drill concluding the annual disaster workshop arranged by the Madrid municipality, 1,200 emergency personnel, including staff from MDA alongside EMS crews from other countries such as Great Britain, The Netherlands, Mauritania, and Norway took part in the exercise. Other participants included the city emergency and security services, several hospitals, military forces, the Spanish National Police, and the Civil Guard.
During the drill that lasted 70 minutes, the emergency crews were called to deal with scenarios including shootings, explosions and hostage situations.
“Magen David Adom’s teams’ professionalism is an example to teams from other countries, both in dealing with complex scenes and also with patient treatment,” the Spanish organizers said.
