With praise and thanks to Hashem, the Jewish community of Northeast Philadelphia is happy to announce the formation of Philadelphia Hatzolah. The program has been formed utilizing a core of trained multilingual volunteers that include all state certified Paramedics, EMTs, and First Responders. All members are equipped with all necessary medical equipment and radio communication devices.
Hatzolah’s emergency hot line telephone number is 215-914-1600 and the area of coverage is currently available in the Bustleton/Somerton and Rawnhurst areas of Northeast Philadelphia (Zip Codes 19115 & 19116). At this time Hatzolah has teamed up with Patriot Ambulance and local municipal EMS services to provide the transports.
Philadelphia Hatzolah is on a 100% volunteer basis and is under the rabbinic auspices of the local Rabonim. Our goal is to promote and expand our services throughout the city of Philadelphia and the surrounding counties.
A special note of gratitude is due to the administration of Patriot Ambulance for their ongoing and continuous efforts on behalf of Philadelphia Hatzolah with their financial assistance, training, and medical guidance to ensure the continuity of excellence in patient care.
Anyone interested in helping provide manpower or monetary support can contact Philadelphia Hatzolah at info@PhiladephiaHatzolah.org. There are dedication opportunities available for anyone interested, and additional training programs are forthcoming.
