Friends of United Hatzalah
A community-based volunteer EMS organization committed to providing the fastest response to medical emergencies across Israel
United Hatzalah volunteers provide lifesaving medical care on the scene of emergencies prior to arrival of an ambulance. Medics arrive on average, within 2-4 minutes of the call for help, often faster. Receiving initial treatment within 4 minutes of the incident assures a higher chance of survival in critical situations, and speedier recovery from injuries and illness. The United Hatzalah medics treat and stabilize the patient and then integrate with the arriving ambulance crew who arrive typically 8-10 minutes after the initial call for help. In times of war and in times of peace, from missile strikes to hemorrhagic strokes, from terror attacks to heart attacks, from car accidents to childbirths – United Hatzalah medics are prepared for any eventuality.
