H’yana mulls Israel-like two wheeler ambulance service

Statesman News Service | Chandigarh |

Haryana may introduce Israel-like two-wheeler ambulance service in the state to save time and lives during an emergency.

This possibility has emerged after the Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, who is leading a high-level delegation to Israel, on Monday visited United Hatzalah in Jerusalem where he interacted with officials to know about the concept of community-based ambulance services on two-wheelers. It has been launched in the crowded cities of Israel to meet any emergency.

With the CM evincing keen interest in the service which can help save time and lives, United Hatzalah of Israel has agreed to send a delegation to Haryana soon to explore the possibilities of a tie-up.

Called ambucycles, these two-wheelers have an attached first-aid case designed to hold all necessary medical equipment. Unlike cars and ambulances, Ambucycles, due to their size, are not held up in traffic jams or in narrow streets.

These are used by United Hatzalah’s volunteers throughout Israel to make sure people get emergency treatment within the first few minutes of any mishap.

United Hatzalah of Israel is the largest independent, non-profit, voluntary emergency medical service organization which provides fastest and free emergency medical first response throughout Israel. United Hatzalah’s service is available to all people regardless of race, religion, or national origin.

It has more than 4,000 volunteers around the country, available round the clock, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. With the help of unique GPS technology and iconic ambulances.
