Full Time

Northeast Regional Development Director

Friends of United Hatzalah Remote, Remote

Background
United Hatzalah is the largest independent, non-profit, fully-volunteer emergency medical services organization that
provides first response care in Israel within minutes of the initial call of distress.
All of United Hatzalah’s volunteers are trained and certified as EMTs, paramedics or doctors. Through their
LifeCompass Command Center, United Hatzalah uses a unique GPS dispatch technology to identify the closest and
most qualified volunteers to an emergency, maximizing efficient allocation of resources and minimizing response
times. Given their proximity, volunteers are able to arrive on scene within 2 to 3 minutes. Hatzalah provides its
services free of charge.
In addition to the proprietary GPS deployment, the key to United Hatzalah’s success in saving lives is its medically
equipped “ambucycles” – which are able to travel nimbly through traffic, narrow alleys and obstructed roadways to
bring almost all the necessary medical equipment an ambulance carries to the scene of an emergency. By using a
location-based volunteer network and ambucycles, United Hatzalah guarantees that medical care can begin prior to
the arrival of a traditional transport ambulance that may be delayed due to distance or traffic.
Friends of United Hatzalah is currently offering a full-time Northeast Regional Development Director position.
