History

A very old, very wise man of the Torah: "Shmaryahu Yosef Chaim Kanievsky (1928– ) is an Israeli rabbi and posek living in Bnei Brak, Israel. Kanievsky is considered a leading authority in Haredi Jewish society." As a student "he was assigned to stand guard on a large hill near Jaffa". "In 2015, he instructed United Hatzalah paramedics that in the event of a terrorist attack, they should not treat the terrorists before the victims, even if the terrorist is more seriously injured, and could even leave the terrorist to die." "In 2016, Kanievsky declared that medicinal cannabis was kosher for Passover."

Wikipedia: "United Hatzalah of Israel was founded in 2006 with the merger of several small local hatzalah organizations. It has grown to become the largest independent, non-profit, fully volunteer EMS organization in the world, with over 6,000 volunteer medics nationwide. The organization provides free services to all citizens regardless of race, religion, or national origin. With the help of its Uber-like GPS dispatch system and fleet of rapid response ambucycles, United Hatzalah has achieved an average response time of less than 3 minutes nationwide and 90 seconds in metropolitan areas. 





United Hatzalah's national command center in Jerusalem uses an advanced GPS-based dispatch technology to identify the closest and most qualified volunteers and routes them to the scene of an emergency through a mobile device application. Approximately 1,000 volunteers are outfitted with medically equipped motorcycles “ambucycles” capable of navigating around traffic jams to reach victims in as few as 90 seconds.[1] The organization is funded exclusively through private charitable support."
