A team of 1,500 professionals and 12,000 trained volunteers provide all of Israel’s population with pre-hospital emergency medical needs 24/7 including, disaster, ambulance and blood services. The MDA National Blood Services Center provides 100% of the blood requirements of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and 97% of the blood needs of Israel’s hospitals and the general population. MDA’s fleet of 700 MDA ambulances and Mobile Intensive Care Units travel over 6.75 million miles a year, taking care of more than 700,000 patients annually. MDA operates from over 100 Emergency Medical Stations and 11 dispatch stations in communities throughout Israel. AFMDA is now working on renovating, expanding or rebuilding many of these.
