Magen David Adom is preparing for a violent outbreak of swine flu in Israel, the organization said in a statement. All volunteers and workers in the organization will be briefed on the virus and risks of being infected at the beginning of every shift, and Magen David Adom also purchased special devices to sterilize MDA ambulances and MDA stations. "Magen David Adom has a prepared national swine flu plan and is in constant contact with all relevant bodies in Israel. We purchased special protective equipment so that our teams can work safely when they tend to patients," Magen David Adom head Eli Bin said.
