What happens when emergencies happen?
We all know that emergencies happen and we all hope that they donâ€™t happen often, but are we prepared for an emergency? It used to be that during an emergency the first reaction was to call 9-1-1. But now, in our neighborhood of Crown Heights, people automatically think to call Hatzalah.
THAT CHANGE DID NOT HAPPEN BY ACCIDENT. It took hard work, perseverance, and most importantly, overwhelming support from our community and people like you, to make Hatzalah into the reliable, life-saving service that is it today.
Please show your support with a generous contribution because Hatzalah is always ready when emergencies happenâ€Ś
IT ALL STARTS WITH
A person living in Crown Heights knows that when something goes wrong they call Hatzalah. That phone call sets in motion a series of seamlessly coordinated events that will, with G-dâ€™s help, prevent a tragedy.
STATE-OF-THE-ART AMBULANCES… …in Crown Heights and always ready to respond to an emergency. Did you know that it costs $150,000 to purchase an ambulance? Did you know that it costs $25,000 just to maintain each ambulance every year? Many of us take Hatzalah’s service for granted. Many of us do not realize how much it costs to sustain the best volunteer ambulance in the world. But as important as ambulances are, Hatzalah’s most valuable assets are our members…
DEDICATED MEMBERS IN CROWN HEIGHTS…
…members equipped with the most advanced, State-of-the-art, life-saving equipment to ensure that each patient gets the best possible care and opportunity for a full recovery. Hundreds of pieces of equipment —radios, defibrillators, medications and more—must be well-maintained and serviced. It is no wonder that our budget is almost $275,000 a year. Because saving lives deserves the very best. Hatzalah’s members are thoroughly trained and always available…
DAYS—AND NIGHTS—A YEAR…
That means our members are on call and available to help literally 24/7 all year long. That means stopping in the middle of the Seder on Pesach night or leaving shul on Yom Kippur to answer a call for help. Because that’s what it means to be a dedicated Hatzalah member. And don’t forget, they’re all volunteers. Hatzalah is a 100% volunteer organization with the best coordinated volunteer staff of any organization in the world. Because we take our responsibility very seriously on behalf of the members of our community…
THE OF JEWISH PEOPLE WHO CALL CROWN HEIGHTS THEIR HOME. Some of the emergencies Hatzalah responds to on a regular basis: Choking/airway obstructions, cardiac arrest, burns, motor vehicle accidents, heart attacks, strokes, cuts, fractures. The scope is remarkable—Crown Heights Hatzalah runs a vast operation. Yet, despite all of the people that we serve, everyone knows they can count on us when they are in need.
All of this is made possible through the generous support of people like…
