I am not an easy person to buy presents for. For years, right as fall is settling in, I make the joke in our family that I want a “fun” car for my birthday present. I’m still the only one that laughs. This year, my ask is a little different, and from a larger family. I want a “Minilance+”!


To clarify, I would like to organize the donation of one to an incredible organization, United Hatzalah of Israel. This past summer, I was fortunate to spend a few weeks in Israel and got to see firsthand the state-of-the-art headquarters in Jerusalem. It didn’t hurt having one of my oldest friends organize the visit.


United Hatzalah is the largest independent, nonprofit, fully-volunteer emergency medical service organization in Israel. They provide the fastest—and the only free—emergency medical first response in Israel.


United Hatzalah’s service is available to all people regardless of race, religion, or national origin. United Hatzalah has more than 7,000 volunteers who are on call around the country—24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. Their mission is to arrive at the scene of medical emergencies as soon as possible, and to provide the patient with professional and appropriate medical aid until an ambulance arrives, resulting in many more lives saved. With the help of their unique GPS technology and their iconic Ambucycles, their average response time is less than 3 minutes across the country, and their goal is to reach every medical emergency in under 90 seconds.


As a cybersecurity leader, hearing the goal of a 90-second response time piqued my interest. While my brain was busy comparing cyber and kinetic, it became clear to me that while there were similarities, the overall mission here was different. There are no “high-value assets” development or test environments. This is an organization that has volunteers from every walk of life and helps the same demographic.


The Minilance Plus is a new kind of rapid response vehicle, especially suited to responding to emergencies in the urban environment. The Minilance Plus is a nimble, four-seat vehicle that is narrow enough to maneuver between rows of cars waiting at traffic lights, speedy enough to arrive at the scene of an emergency within minutes, and agile enough to park in tiny spaces or even on the sidewalk. A storage compartment behind the seats holds a fully stocked medic’s bag and portable defibrillator.


For those of you who may be curious about efforts stateside, here is one fascinating initiative: United Hatzalah has recently launched a pilot program in four counties in the State of Iowa.b Leveraging the cutting-edge technology honed by United Hatzalah in Israel, this initiative will tailor their successful “crowdsourced medical program” to empower Iowa’s volunteer EMS departments. The primary goal of this program is to expedite emergency response emergency response times, enabling swift intervention and stabilization of victims prior to the ambulance’s arrival. This groundbreaking approach addresses the issues of prolonged ambulance response times in the region, promising to revolutionize emergency medical services and enhance overall community safety.
