About Us

Who We Are

The name Hatzola comes from the Hebrew word “lehatsil” meaning “to save”.  There are Hatzola organisations worldwide in almost every large Jewish community.  Edgware now prides itself with the fifth Hatzola in England.

Hatzola Edgware consists of a team of volunteer medics who are trained to a high level and provide emergency care and assistance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to Edgware and the immediate surrounding areas.

Hatzola medics are equipped with life-saving medical equipment including defibrillators, oxygen and resuscitation devices. All Hatzola medics have the advanced training and skill necessary to provide competent medical emergency care.

Hatzola medics are linked to a dispatch centre via a sophisticated two-way radio communication system, and are ready to drop whatever they are doing to respond to medical emergencies 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Hatzola is a free service to the community.

We receive no government funding, and are funded entirely through private donation.
