Chaveirim: We’re Here For Emergencies Only

Lakewood Chaveirim is mobilizing and gearing up for the impending storm, but are already getting swamped with unnecessary calls. Chaveirim says calls such as requesting weather updates etc. are unnecessary and just tie up the members as well as the lines.

Chaveirim also says that generators are for emergency situations only, and should not be requested for regular blackouts during the storm

“We should not be your plan A”, a Chaveirim coordinator tells TLS. “During the storm, we’re here for emergencies only.”

Chaveirim generators are used for elderly patients and patients using emergency equipment such as ventilators. Chaveirim says they will also be utilizing some of Bikur Cholim’s generators and services during the storm. 

Additionally, Chaveirim says that “If you’re told not to leave your home, don’t”, and don’t attempt to drive in dangerous weather conditions. Your vehicle can get stuck, further tying up Chaveirim members. TLS.

  1. Gevaldig. I have over 10 generators on the ready if necessary for emergency for the storm prepared. We also have food packages and water all ready to be distributed. So the oilem should have food. Hashem should help that it should just pass and klall yisroael should not have any losses, a gut voch

  2. moshe ber, what do you mean by OVER 10 generators. do you have 10 or more than 10.

    This storm has been talked about for more than a week now. I hope the OILEM took the warning of there appointed afficials.

  3. I’m not a chaveriem member, but I have that are. You wouldn’t believe the nature of the calls they get.

    During last snow storm someone called and asked if a member is available to pick him a sandwich from glatt bite. . .

  4. Please do not call chaveriem if your little kid drops some coins in the toilet!! I want to startblocking numbers of people who call with stupidity.
