IDF Home Front Command launched a media campaign in preparation for the national Home Front exercise Nekudat Mifne 4 on Sunday.

The joint exercise will be held by the National Emergency Management Authority (NEMA), the IDF Home Front Command, the Israel Police, Magen David Adom emergency services, government offices and local authorities. It will simulate various emergency scenarios and responses provided to civilians in Israel on May 26 at 11:00 a.m. Home Front Command requests that all residents enter protected spaces at that time.

The media campaign includes television and radio broadcasts in Hebrew and other languages, as well as internet ads, directing the public to the Home Front Command website. In addition, the campaign will include ads in national and target-specific newspapers, such as haredi and Arabic newspapers.

This is the fourth consecutive year the exercise has taken place.
