    as all the Hatzolah are together in brooklyn they should drive up in mass to help as much as then can and perhaps avert another tragedy

    I don’t know how well these work but they sell things like “The Little Buddy” child tracker. A parent using a computer can track the location of their child at all times.

    So a child should have two things. 1. A panic button that makes a very loud and shocking sound to get other people’s attention (or maybe we need a panic button which shouts “Help, I’m in Trouble” etc.) and 2. A child tracker.

    Also, there are services that will come to the aid of a person by having them press a button (instead of having to dial a number which takes too long when it’s a real emergency). Maybe our Hatzolah could provide that service for a nominal fee per child/person/business.

  17. Ms. Critique who may always know the answers correctly says:

    It is called Spinka Camp but is not. Spinka leases to a different Yeshiva.

  18. basmelech says:

    What was he doing in Staten Island Mall, instead in camp, where he was supposed to be?

  19. bsimcha tamid says:
