Ambulances can get to most places where people need them. But they don’t weave in and around traffic like ambucycles. However, even ambucycles can’t negotiate some dirt paths on hiking trails. Israel is a country that abounds with hiking trails. United Hatzalah of Israel knows how to save the life of a person in the most remote location.
Meet Itamar from Beit Shemesh. He doesn’t handle regular ambucycles. He drives on dirt roads in his all-terrain vehicle. Even he can find someone in need within 90 seconds…
United Hatzalah of Israel is the largest independent, non-profit, volunteer Emergency Medical Service organization that provides the fastest and free emergency medical first response throughout Israel. United Hatzalah’s service is available to all people regardless of race, religion, or national origin. They have more than 5,000 volunteers around the country. United Hatzalah volunteers are available around the clock – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. With the help of unique GPS technology and our iconic ambucycles, the average response time is less than 3 minutes across the country and 90 seconds in metropolitan areas. Their mission is to arrive at the scene of medical emergencies as soon as possible. There, they provide the patient with professional and appropriate medical aid until an ambulance arrives, which saves many lives.
