Two More Hatzolah Members Become Paramedics

hatz_monoc_rigTLS has learned that two Hatzolah members have just passed their Paramedic Boards, adding another two medics to the growing team of Paramedics on Lakewood Hatzolah. R’ Shaul Wolhendler, and Captain R’ Moshe Lipschitz – both on Hatzolah for several years, are the latest members to take the approximately 2,000 hour course, certifying them as full fledged Paramedics.

Hatzolah Paramedics, also known as an ALS (Advanced Life Support) units, have partnered up with MONOC Paramedics about two years ago, in an effort to bring advanced lifesaving measures to patients at scenes, which the standard BLS units cannot offer.

With these newest Paramedic members, Hatzolah now has 12 Paramedics in the organization. TLS.

  1. They will still need to be hired by MONOC before they can actually be on 270. up until then they are still considered EMT’s on Hatzolah. This process usually takes approx 3 months.

  2. Wow this is a huge milestone. The medic course is really intense material. They must’ve put literally thousands of hours into this. Kudos and good luck!

  3. ..of R’ Shaul. Hatzolah is not the only chesed he does.

    Even though I haven’t fully expressed my tremendous gratitude for actions he has done which were above and beyond.. I am always davening for his family’s hatzlocha!

  4. Omg, MAZAL TOV!!! I am so happy for them! This is such wonderful news to hear! What a milestone, it must be such an accomplishing feeling, I am really so thrilled to hear this!

    Much bracha & hatzlacha in everything you do! May H-shem reward you for all the hours, and time, and effort that you put into this tenfold!!

  5. Anonymous yes they help everyone! As a matter of fact 270 responds to mutual aid calls not within the cOrthodox Jewish community as much as they respond to the community. And just by the way they are the only paramedics in the entire NJ who will come and save you for free!! When on 270 they don’t make a dollar but will still come to you at 3:00 am when you need them. So both Jew and gentile can say thank you to these selfless people!
