Ambulance bay at Tel Aviv Sourasky ED.
The building on the left houses security, emergency equipment, and the wet decontamination area; it also serves as a protection for the ED from bomb blasts.
The 3-cm steel doors to the entrance of the ED at Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center can provide a hermetic lockdown. The ED can function as a self-contained unit for 24 hours in case of biochemical attacks.
