This service has already been implemented in Jerusalem. Ambucycles are motorcycles used by United Hatzalah’s volunteers throughout Israel to make sure they get to emergencies within the first few minutes.
United Hatzalah is a free, volunteer-based emergency medical services organization based in Jerusalem. it provides fast and free emergency response across the country. The Indian delegation led by the Manohar Lal Khatter includes Krishnan Kumar Bedi, Minister of State for Social Justice.
The report further added that United Hatzalah of Israel will send a delegation to Haryana to explore the possibilities of a tie-up and introducing these ambulances on two-wheelers in Haryana. The officials say that the due to small and compact size, Ambucycles do not get stuck in traffic or narrow streets like actual ambulances. It has a first-aid case attached to the rear of the scooter that keeps the necessary medical equipment needed in a case of an emergency.
