Magen David Adom (MDA) is preparing for R’ Ovadia Yosef’s funeral procession due to start this evening (Monday) at 18:00 p.m. The organization says that it expects hundreds of thousands to participate. They will be positioned on streets through every neighborhood along the route, to offer help and first aid to whomever needs it. Ambulances will be present to transport those who may need to be evacuated to a more formal treatment center. Extra paramedics and medical staff will be on site, as well.
They are asking for the public who will be there to avoid pushing and causing more congestion, and to keep a sharp eye on children so they do not get trampled upon, that they are dressed warm enough, and to take care that they have enough to eat and drink.
