Chevra Hatzalah, together with Lakewood Hatzalah, Monsey Hatzalah, Kiryas Joel Hatzalah and Baltimore Hatzalah, have been closely monitoring Hurricane Irma. We have all been preparing for the past few days to send Ambulances, EMTs and Paramedics to Miami at the request of Miami Hatzalah.
Due to the decrease in the storm severity, we have scaled our response appropriately. In conjunction with Miami Hatzalah and at the request and with the approval of the State of Florida, Chevra Hatzalah has 4 ambulances, a few support vehicles, as well as 20 EMTs, Paramedics and physicians en-route to Miami. The response team should be arriving in
Miami late tonight.
Our thoughts and prayers remain with all those affected by Hurricane Irma.
