Brooklyn Borough President Antonio Reynoso allocated $575,000 in capital funding to Hatzoloh Incorporated to buy two new, all-electric ambulances, one to cover the Boro Park area and the other to cover the Williamsburg area.
“Growing up in Williamsburg, I saw firsthand how Hatzoloh enhances the health of entire neighborhoods,” said Brooklyn Borough President Antonio Reynoso. “In times of great need and urgency, Hatzoloh first responders are there to provide comfort and care, and with two new ambulances, their reach can grow even larger. This allocation is a mark of gratitude for the many lives touched and saved by Hatzoloh and the incredible volunteers who dedicate their time to the well-being of all.”
This new funding will be combined with Councilmember Kalman Yeger's previously announced $885,000 allocation and will be able to add five new Hatzoloh ambulances to Brooklyn neighborhoods. Councilman Yeger commended Hatzalah’s lifesaving capacity that eases the burden on the city's 911 system.
“Hatzalah is grateful to partner with the City of New York and the Borough President’s office to provide top-of-line emergency medical services throughout the City and beyond. Every ambulance provided to Hatzalah is utilized in our life-saving work. The Borough President recognizes this and wants to continue to be a key participant and partner in our work. We are appreciative and grateful,” said Yehiel Kalish, CEO of Hatzoloh Incorporated.
