A large-scale international exercise took place at the Soroka Medical Center in Beersheba on Wednesday, January 13 simulating the evacuation of dozens of casualties following a massive terrorist attack.

Hundreds of professionals from 30 countries participated in the exercise organized by the Soroka Medical Center, the Ministry of Health Emergency Department, the IDF Home Front Command, and the IDF Medical Corps.

Dozens of simulated casualties with various degrees of injury were evacuated to Soroka Medical Center in scenarios mimicking a terror attack in a populated urban facility and leakage of hazardous materials from a train car.

Soroka Medical Center Director Dr. Ehud Davidson said: “We have a lot of experience in dealing with mass-casualty incidents and I’m proud to have this opportunity to showcase the abilities of our life-saving teams to professionals from all around the world.”

The exercise was the closing event of the IPRED IV—the Fourth International Conference on Healthcare System Preparedness and Response to Emergencies and Disasters. During the conference, professionals from around the globe presented the latest findings regarding preparedness for dealing with various disasters and emergencies.
