Why am I volunteering for United Hatzalah? United Hatzalah's volunteers are 'normal' people doing extraordinary things for others, within the framework of their day-to-day lives. Working in finance and business is obviously very important to me, but I always try to maintain a balance in my life and United Hatzalah is one way that I do that. I enjoy helping others and having direct contact with people in need. I've always been interested in the medical field, and volunteering with United Hatzalah is how I pursue that interest. It's always been a childhood dream of mine, even from a young age, to specifically be a Hatzalah volunteer, when I saw the volunteers in my community rushing to save lives. Another passionate interest of mine is technology, and United Hatzalah is always utilising the cutting-edge, latest technologies to find new ways to reduce the response time, increase efficiency, and ultimately save more lives. Why am I raising money for an Ambucycle? One of United Hatzalah's most impressive and successful inventions is the 'ambucycle'. It's a specially designed motorcycle with sirens, lights, GPS, special safety paint and most importantly, a full set of emergency medical equipment. These ambucyles allow United Hatzalah volunteers to get through rush-hour traffic; to reach small alleyways, otherwise unreachable by cars; and ultimately, to get to the scene of the incident as quickly as possible. After volunteering for United Hatzalah for a few months now (since July 2014) I have noticed that the first ones to arrive on scene are always the ambucycle drivers. They park the ambucycle in seconds and are offering their services and assistance before I have even arrived in my car. The time it takes for me to reach the scene and park the car is precious time that can be utilized to help others, because when seconds count, lives can be saved. To read more:
