PHOTOS: Hatzolah of Central Jersey Inaugurates New Ambulance Donated by Mr. & Mrs. Chuny Herzka

Hatzolah of Central Jersey today announced the inauguration of a new ambulance to serve the Toms River communities.

The purchase of this brand new state of the art ambulance was made possible through the boundless generosity of Mr. & Mrs. Chuni Herzka, a well-known philanthropic couple. The new ambulance was inaugurated at a ribbon cutting ceremony at the home of the Herzka family on Sunday. The event was attended by Rabonim, Herzka family and friends as well as HCJ leadership and members of the community.

“The administration and membership of HCJ join to wish the Herzka family many years of health, happiness, and continued success in all of their endeavors,” the organization stated.

This new ambulance will join the current fleet of 17 ambulances and a total of 35 vehicles servicing Lakewood, Toms River, Manchester, Howell, Brick, and Jackson. In addition, HCJ will be accepting the delivery of four additional brand new ambulances in the coming months. Some of the new ambulances will be replacing aging ambulances within the fleet, and others will be used at new posts as communities continue to expand.

Hatzolah stated, “The growth in our communities בלי עין הרע כן ירבו is closely monitored by HCJ leadership to make sure that all the residents of our communities have access to world class emergency medical service response as quickly as possible. HCJ continues to ensure that the response is not only quick but, more importantly, high quality. This focus on quality care requires rigorous vetting of potential new members, continuing education of current membership, and the purchase of the latest and greatest of medical equipment available on the market. HCJ is extremely proud to be able to provide rapid high quality emergency services to our communities with over 200 members, including EMTs, paramedics, MDs, PAs, NPs, and psychologists, all highly trained respected members of our communities.”
