Israel conducted an exercise this week simulating a mass poisoning incident, a video released by Beilinson Hospital in Petah Tikva shows.

The footage shows a simulated traffic accident involving a collision between a bus and a truck carrying hazardous substances, which results in 50 injuries, Israel’s Walla news website reported.

The two-minute clip demonstrates how medical teams dispatched to the scene would treat the injured, including on-the-spot treatment by medical personnel wearing bio-hazard suits that would include cleansing and decontamination from hazardous substances, and transportation of the victims to an emergency room for further treatment.

Watch the video of the emergency exercise below.
