First responders, together in hell

Emergency medicine volunteers return to the site of the devastating events of October 7, where they were among the earliest to reach the massacred communities

On October 7, 2023, United Hatzalah first responders were among the earliest emergency services to reach the massacred communities along the border with Gaza. A month later, two of these volunteers take us back to the destroyed communities in their ambulance as they retrace some of the steps from the most traumatic days of their lives.

Over the course of the drive, they recount stories as they make their way to step foot inside one of the kibbutzim for the first time since the massacre. Here, they finally view the remains of the devastating events that changed their lives.
