The Refresher CD for the EMT is the product of a joint effort by Keren Yosef and Magen David Adom. This unique CD, the first of its kind in Israel, contains a digital summary of the contents of the Emergency Medical Technician course as taught by Magen David Adom. Its purpose is to assist emergency medical personnel to update and refresh their knowledge.

The CD was initiated and written by Tova Cern, author of Israel’s leading EMT textbook. The medical contents were reviewed and edited various professionals headed by Dan Pharchi z”l, the legendary senior MDA paramedic formerly the supervising paramedic of Jerusalem District. The production and execution of the refresher CD were managed by Boaz Cern.

The Refresher CD was distributed in over 4000 copies to volunteer EMTs by Magen David Adom Volunteer headquarters (MAPA).
