    • Haryana Chief Minister, Mr. Manohar Lal, and members of the delegation being briefed by an official of United Hatzalah about the Emergency Response Control Room, in United Hatzalah’s in Jerusalem (Israel) on May 7, 2018.
    • Chandigarh, May 7—A la Israel, Haryana may introduce ambulance-equipped two-wheeler service in the state.
    • This possibility has emerged after the Chief Minister, Mr Manohar Lal, who is leading a high-level delegation to Israel, today 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 Chief Minister 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.
    • The high level delegation led by the Chief Minister includes Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment, Mr. Krishan Kumar.
    • 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, the average response time is less than three minutes across the country and 90 seconds in metropolitan areas.
