EBike4Life: An e-Bike to save lives in Israel

Presentation :

My name is Tsvi. I am married and have three children.  I’m an aeronautical engineer and a Major (Res.) in the IDF. 
I am a volunteer EMT with United Hatzalah.
As a United Hatzalah volunteer EMT, I respond to emergency calls in my neighborhood on a daily basis.

United Hatzalah איחוד הצלה in brief:

United Hatzalah (איחוד הצלה) is a free, volunteer-based emergency medical services (EMS) organization based in Jerusalem. Founded in 2006, it is the largest independent, non-profit and fully volunteer EMS organization in Israel, with more than 3,500 emergency medical technicians (EMT), certified first responders, paramedics and doctors dispersed throughout the country. United Hatzalah’s LifeCompass Command Center uses advanced GPS-based dispatch technology to identify the closest and most qualified volunteers to the scene of an emergency and routes those individuals through a mobile device application. Cadres of trained civilian volunteers throughout Israel create a web of emergency first responders, each outfitted with medically equipped motorcycles or e-bikes capable of reaching victims in as few as 90 seconds. The organization is funded exclusively through private charitable support.

An e-Bike-Ambulance?!

I live in the Kyriat Yovel neighborhood of Jerusalem. Kyriat Yovel is only 2 square kilometers (~0.8 square miles), but has over 25000 residents. There are many medical emergencies, and the streets are very narrow and jammed.

The Ambubike (electric bicycle ambulance) is therefore the most suitable vehicle for first response (BLS and PHTLS) in minimum time!

Volunteers as part of United Hatzalah of Israel use E-bikes because they possess an ability to assist emergency first responders. Electric rapid response bicycles are nimble, thereby allowing their riders to access spaces that motor vehicles, even motorcycles, cannot, such as narrow walking paths, alleyways, and parks. In addition, they allow for circumventing instances of bumper-to-bumper traffic. While regular vehicles wait in the standstill, e-bikes can easily cut through, or go around traffic congested roadways.

The e-Bike-Ambulance will be equipped with all the requisite equipment and supplies to provide first response (see the attached list). Supplies will be replenished for at least 3 years. The e-Bike-Ambulance makes it possible to arrive at the scene of an emergency in less than 3 minutes, the difference between life and death in 25% of medical emergencies in Israel.

I invite all of you to participate by donating and sharing on social media…
