An alarm is an ascending and descending siren activated by the Home Front Command when missile fire is detected. Today’s alarm systems make it possible to identify the area where the missile is most likely to fall, and an alarm is activated only in that location. In addition to the alarm, the radio and television will broadcast the areas that are required to take shelter.

 

The area of Efrat is "Yehuda - 206"

When an alarm sounds, go to the safe space as quickly as possible. 

Guidelines:

Those inside a building should enter the safe room, stairwell, or inner room and close doors and windows.

Those outside - if you are in an area with buildings, enter a building or a nearby shelter.

In an open area, lie on the ground and protect your head with your hands.

Those in vehicles - stop at the side of the road, get out of the vehicle and enter a nearby building or shelter. If you cannot get to a building or shelter, get out of the vehicle, lie on the ground and protect your head with your hands.
