Learn more about Hatzolah
Hatzolah responds to around 2 500 emergency calls per year, at an average of around seven calls per day, saving countless lives. We respond to emergencies within the greater Glenhazel and select surrounding areas, as well as from the eastern border of Edenvale across to Rosebank, and from the southern border of the Johannesburg CBD to the Marlboro area. Sandton, Gallo Manor, Greenside, Emmarentia, and Victory Park also fall within our areas of operation.
From the moment that members start the rigorous process of joining Hatzolah, they understand that they are expected to give their best every moment of the day. Hatzolah takes the training of each member, and the maintenance of standards to heart, as this can be the difference between life or death. It is this commitment to excellence that Hatzolah lives by every day, ensuring quick response times and holistic treatment.
The Hatzolah model is so effective because most of our members are volunteers who live and work in the community we serve.
Every responder has their phone on at all times, with a full jump bag of medical equipment in their personal car, ensuring that the moment there is an emergency, the closest person can be there to assist until an ambulance arrives.
