You Can Save Lives!

Did you know it takes on average 8-12 minutes for an ambulance to arrive at the scene of the call? A lot can happen within that time. 

At the one-minute mark of oxygen deprivation, brain cells begin dying. At three minutes, neurons suffer more extensive damage, and lasting brain damage becomes likely. 

The greater Givat Sharet neighborhood in Bet Shemesh lacks the First Responder EMT model that other communities benefit from. We rely heavily on ambulance response time. 

This needs to change, we need faster response times! Thankfully, with the help of United Hatzalah of Israel, we will be taking matters into our own hands. Our community will benefit from the 90 second response time that the United Hatzalah of Israel framework can provide. 

This is because we have an amazing group of people ready to become volunteer EMTs! United Hatzalah of Israel will be providing a hybrid Israeli and United States emergency first responder training course for these volunteers. The course will allow participants to become certified EMTs in both Israel and most of the United States. However, the cost is $25,000 for approximately 40 participants. 

By donating here for this you ensure this training happens taking our area from zero coverage to a whole team of volunteer EMTs.

Your donation will save lives!
