Forty Magen David Adom ambulances and mobile intensive care units will participate on Wednesday at noon in Tel Aviv's Drive-In parking lot in a special exercise to extricate injured from a simulated train crash, MDA announced Monday. Dozens of medics, paramedics and other rescue forces from the Dan, Ayalon and Yarkon regions will take part, along with the Israel Police, Fire Service and Israel Railways. The drill was planned in the wake of several fatal train crashes in Israel and abroad, including Spain. After triage, first aid and assessment, some 300 "wounded" will be evacuated to area hospitals.
