Review for Friends Of United Hatzalah Inc, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a United Hatzalah volunteer and proud of it. United Hatzalah not only provides us with the training, equipment and supplies that we need to save lives, they provide us with the sense of mission, camaraderie and encouragement that is so important in this type of work. Nothing can compare with the feeling of awe and exhiliration that comes from helping deliver a baby or the sense of relief and satisfaction when you help restart a persons heart. However the trauma of seeing people young and old that we can not help along with the challenges of being on-call 24/7/365 coupled with the drain of dealing with false alarms, drunks and inconsiderate people can really be quite a challenge. United Hatzalah provides us with the framework to succeed, thrive and continue to help saving lives in Israel. What can be better than that!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My own 19 year-old daughter recently fell off a roof and broke one of the vertebrae in her back. As a medic I was first on the scene but as a father I was deeply worried. Seeing the other guys in the area responding to my call for help was amazing.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
