United Hatzalah and MDA Deal Will Save Lives


United Hatzalah and Magen David Adom recently struck an agreement which will hopefully end a longstanding conflict which sometimes interferes with aid to the sick and injured.

According to the deal, MDA and Hatzalah will create a joint hotline which receives all emergency calls and informs volunteers of both groups where to go.

“The Health Ministry clearly spoke of a need and obligation of the MDA hotline to share information about emergency calls it receives with the United Hatzalah hotline, a demand we stood by for many years,” said United Hatzalah CEO Moshe Teitelbaum. “… In the coming months, the agreement and collaboration will be tested, and we hope that the cooperation goes well and helps to save lives.”
