What people say?

When my 3 week old daughter was having trouble breathing, Hatzalah not only showed up within seconds of my wife’s call, but the volunteers were calming and assuring throughout her evaluation and transportation to the hospital. I can’t thank Hatzalah enough for taking such good care of not only my daughter during her medical crisis, but also my wife’s and my feelings and emotions throughout the ordeal.

Im so grateful for this amazing team of caring individuals. We all know, in times of emergencies, our heads are spinning. I made the call not knowing what to expect, not knowing that they were out of my area. Nevertheless, in 10 min, two medical professionals were at my doorstep. The amount of medical knowledge and assertiveness they had was beyond my expectations. “ Hatzala” means Savers in Hebrew. The name Definitely Suits them, true angels.

Hatzalah is unbelivable and the volunteers are doing an excellent job, they give all their effort and time which is the most valuable thing, last 2 weeks they helped me with my 3 kids at different times, eventhough I could not keep my calm they did and helped me so much, there are no words to express my gratitude to them.
