WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.-- The Westchester County Board of Legislators will host a special meeting for emergency first responders with Guy Caspi, the chief multi-casualty incident instructor and director of hazmat exercises for Magen David Adom, Israel’s ambulance, disaster relief and blood-services organization, on Thursday from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
Area first responders from police and fire departments, as well EMT units and ambulance corps, will have an opportunity at the meeting to hear from Caspi about MDA protocols and his work, which includes development of training programs and educational drills in preparation for the necessary responses to multi-casualty incidents, and to improve on-scene coordination and cooperation.
MDA has emerged as the world’s most experienced paramedic organization in responding to multi-casualty incidents due to the high volume of violent attacks in Israel.
Seating is limited at the meeting, which is not open to the public. First responders interested in attending should email an RSVP to Wendy Wild at email@example.com.
