hatzoloh's calling

הצלת נפשות
Saving Lives

Sanctity of life plays a central role in Judaism, to the extent that
practicing Jews are permitted to violate the sanctity of the Sabbath to
preserve it.

From coordinating, training, funding, equipping, maintaining, and
responding – keeping Hatzoloh running smoothly is anything but
simple. But in a community that values life above all else, there is
simply no price too high or effort too great.


On call 24/7/365

Hatzoloh is manned by an army of trained volunteers. At any given moment, our brave responders put their lives
on pause to respond to emergencies, often leaving their families, jobs, children and warm beds to save a life.



The backbone of Hatzoloh, our
EMTs complete a rigorous New
York State Dept. of Health
training program in emergency
medical care, and recertify every
three years. Every EMT
carries with him primary first-aid
kits, oxygen and automatic defibrillators.


Paramedics receive extensive
training in Advanced Life
Support and bring the ER to the
patient with their drug bags,
EKG monitors, and other
advanced medical tools.


Our medical doctors
work with our volunteers in the
field. MDs are also available for
immediate, on-call guidance and
recommendations as needed.


All of our dispatchers
go through a rigorous
training program and are
subject to ongoing training
and continuous quality control.

Community Outreach

Hatzoloh trains volunteers
from local schools in basic,
first-response, emergency medicine,
to enable them to stabilize
patients until
Hatzoloh members arrive.

Graduates of this program
become NY State Certified
First Responders (CFRs).
