APF Volunteers: Answering the Call
APF’s Emergency Medical Volunteer Registry (EMV) is the official organization designated by the State of Israel to be called upon in the event of a declared national crisis in Israel. APF maintains a list of U.S. and Canadian healthcare professionals willing to volunteer to provide medical aid in Israel should such an emergency arise.
Israel’s bitter experiences during past conflicts have taught that in time of emergency, physicians and nurses specializing in surgery, trauma and critical care are needed from abroad to replace their Israeli peers who have been called into active military service, thus depleting hospital staffs. The Government of Israel has designated APF to coordinate these efforts, including maintaining an active Registry of physicians and healthcare professionals, should the need arise. In 2012, APF participated in Israel’s first major earthquake drill.
