Please join us for a special eyewitness account from October 7th with Aryeh Myers, Senior Paramedic and Liaison Magen David Adom International Relations Department.

Aryeh Myers has more than 20 years of frontline EMS experience. After working as a paramedic in London for 10 years, he moved to Israel in 2012 and joined Magen David Adom. He served a decade as a senior paramedic and trainer for MDA before moving to its International Relations Department in 2022.

On October 7, Aryeh was on call in Ashkelon treating a range of injuries, such as shrapnel wounds and smoke inhalation resulting from rocket attacks.

In his international relations role, Aryeh helps MDA teams convey their stories to a global audience, a mission that has become even more important since October 7th. He has had the opportunity to speak with many paramedics, EMTs, and dispatchers about their experiences that day.
