  1. it is a shame that this happens, but do we now start posting every time a member of fire or ems in on location of another town’s incident. It is great they happened to be in the area and they did their job. but why is this news in lakewood

  2. It’s to show that the members of all our squads and orginazations are willing to go well beyond the call of duty to help anyone in their time of need! That helps me sleep better at night it should help you as well.

  3. To #1 the reason why It’s Lakewood news because we wanna show the hakoros hatov to the Lakewood ems fire and hatzoloh that wherever they are they will stop to help someone

  4. …Some people think Hatzolah is just for frum yidden, others think Lakewood Hatzalah is just about Lakewood. This is an important illustration of what Lakewood Hatzolah is: 1st responders, doing their duty anywhere and for anyone, VOLUNTARILY.

    Thank you , Hatzolah.

  5. Its so sad to hear about such tragedies! One person dead a family shattered….the humanistic part of these stories should never be missed. We can’t afford to become numb to human suffering no matter who, where, and why. All first responders G-D bless you and protect us all!

  6. The members of Hatzalah and all first responders should be thanked everyday. The country is in dire need of men and women who will go out to help there fellow citizens regardless of harms way.
    Keep up the great work.
