Provide our medics with EpiPens

Since January 1st 2019, United Hatzalah received 4,586 calls in which the responder needed an EpiPen and only a handful of the volunteers had one with them!

Did you know that millions of severe allergy sufferers are at high risk of going into anaphylactic shock, a serious allergic reaction that can cause death within minutes? The severe reaction can be treated with an EpiPen, a pen-like auto-injector that is used to deliver the lifesaving medication epinephrine.

Many allergy patients don't carry, or forget to carry their EpiPens with them at all times. In addition, people don't always know they are allergic to a food and they find out only when they eat that food, completely unprepared for a medical emergency! In the case of sudden anaphylactic shock, these patients are completely dependent on the timely arrival of emergency services.

Most of our 5,000 medics do not have EpiPens in their medical kits. Those that do have them purchased it themselves but until now, United Hatzalah has not been able to provide EpiPens to all of our volunteer medics.

This needs to change immediately! Every medic should have 2 kits on them at all times. Every kit contains 2 EpiPens - one for a child and one for an adult.

Please help today and donate EpiPens for our medics here at United Hatzalah so they can have the supplies they need to save lives!

OUR MEDICS NEED 10,000 SETS OF EPIPENS
phone

Did you know:

  • An EpiPen lasts 15 months and then it expires and can't be used.
  • Currently, our medics don't have any EpiPens in their medic bags.
  • An EpiPen can only be used once and then it must be discarded.
ALLERGIC ILLNESS IN THE STATE OF ISRAEL:
25-40%
of the entire
population suffers
from an allergic
illness
1-2%
of children are allergic
to foods that can cause
an anaphylactic

of the population will
suffer an anaphylactic
reaction at least
once durring their lifetime

Harvey and Gloria Kaylie

Harvey and Gloria Kaylie

The Kaylies have made a permanent impact on the nation of Israel and the Jewish community in the United States. Since the 1970s, Harvey has made a prestigious and economic impact on Israel through the success of Ravon Electronics, a branch of the 1969-founded company Mini-Circuits Inc., of which Harvey was President. With Gloria by his side in spirit and in deed, Harvey made the company a global leader in radio frequency and microwave signal processing components.

However, this was just the start. Throughout their lives the Kaylies have made giving a priority. Today, their philanthropy has helped young people with developmental disabilities integrate with their peers via Camp Kaylie; benefitted Jewish education through support of Yeshiva University, Yeshiva Har Torah, and a variety of Jewish Federations; and they have impacted social services and health care in Israel. Their most recent donation for establishment of the Kaylie Kidney Health Center of Excellence at Rambam Health Care Campus will facilitate innovative kidney research—impacting kidney health at a global level, and ensuring the best possible medical care for kidney patients in Israel’s northern region.

Saving Time. Saving Lives.

Founded in 2006, United Hatzalah has grown to become the largest independent, non-profit, nationaly recognized and fully-volunteer emergency medical services (EMS) orginization in Israel, responding to over 900 emergency calls a day. United Hatzalah's 5,000 medics, paramedics, and doctors create a web of emergency first responders, each connected to a GPS-based dispatch system which, together with our innovative transportation solutions, provids lifesaving aid faster than any other EMS organization in the world, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

United Hatzalah has democratized access to emergency medical services by providing its services free of charge and has improved victim outcomes by getting first responders to the scene of an emergency three times faster than an ambulance. Our volunteers, spotted at every medical emergency, have been dubbed 'Angels in Orange' after their trademark orange vests. United Hatzalah has set a goal to grow to 6,000 volunteer medics in Israel by 2020 and further reduce the average response time to just 90 seconds nationwide.
