Neubauprojekt einer Magen-David-Adom-Station in der Stadt Modiin
Building the Modiin Station will improve MDA’s response to incidents in the area and provide residents with optimal and timely emergency medical care, as well as train the next generation of medical professionals. The station is planned to increase the area served and serve as a regional station for the greater Modiin area. A regional station differs from an MDA station in that it typically provides additional services beyond emergency response services such as hosting training courses, regional offices and backup ambulances for emergency times.
The Modiin Station is staffed with 2 MICUs (Mobile Intensive Care Units), 4 Standard Ambulances, and 4 emergency ambulances of which 1 is outfitted with basic ALS (Advanced Life Support) supplies and 3 are community ambulances, which provides services not only to Modiin - Maccabim - Reut, but also to the surrounding communities. The communities include: Mevo Horon, Beit Horon, Moshav Matityahu, Shaalabim, Nof Ayalon, and many others. In addition to the ambulances, members of the Modiin Station act as first responders 24/7 to provide emergency medical care until the arrival of ambulances to an incident both in their private vehicles and on MDA Medi-Cycles.
Per shift, the station is staffed with 2 standard
ambulances and 1 MICU which provide services to Modiin - Maccabim - Reut and surrounding areas. These ambulances are reinforced by 4 volunteer ambulance teams who add to the services daily.
Being that the Modi’in station serves such a large geographical area, its call volume is high in proportion. As of 2018, the Modi’in station handled 17,034 emergency incidents which are detailed in the graph.
As the population grows, the number of incidents and demand on the EMS system will grow in proportion, thus the need for a new station which can accommodate the ever-growing population and the ever-evolving challenges.
