Hatzolah EMS
« on: October 28, 2011, 02:13:18 AM »
I have seen a lot of the Hatzolah EMS in some of the photo slideshows. Just wanted to know a little about them. Are they Paid or Volunteer? Who dispatches them?  How are they notified of a run? What areas do they cover?

They are dispatched by their own dispatchers. They cater to the Ultra Orthodox Jewish communities in the city. I believe they are half volunteer/paid. They cover Williamsburg, Crown Heights, Midwood, they have a bus that sits on Lexington between 85 and 84. I also believe they have a pretty big presence in Rockland and Orange Counties.
Step up or Shut up!!!

There's also a Hatzolah unit that operates in Nassau County, on the south shore and into the Rockaways in Queens.  Here's a link to their web site:

And to the overall Hatzolah web site, that tells you where else they operate:

They only respond to Jewish, I was on an MVA with them about a year ago, they took care of the Jewish people that were involved but the other care they would not touch. The other car had a serious injury. They were first on scene and once they found out one car was non Jewish people Hatzolah refused to treat and walked away.

Is EMT in NY issued/revoked by the state. Where is their duty to act and wouldn't it be abandonment like memory master said?

Doesn't seem like abandonment...it is.
