Council Member Simcha Felder and Mayor Michael Bloomberg were joined by Hatzolah leaders, members of the community, and other elected officials to celebrate the groundbreaking for a brand new, state of the art headquarters for Hatzolah that will include a command center, more garages, and a new training facility.
Both Council Member Felder and Mayor Bloomberg recognized the importance of Hatzolah to the community and to the City and they worked closely together to find a geographically convenient location for the headquarters and to arrange for the sale of the property from the City to Hatzolah.
“I am happy that the Mayor recognized the importance of Hatzolah and worked with me to secure this location for them. It is with great pleasure that I could participate at the groundbreaking and look forward to seeing this state of the art complex in operation soon,” said Felder.
The new 3-story, 20,000-square-foot facility, to be built on 14th Avenue and 37th Street, will house six ambulances, a mobile emergency command center [MERV], and emergency snow-plows. The building will also have a training facility and state-of-the-art dispatching center.
Boro Park Hatzolah currently has 150 dedicated volunteers - consisting of EMT’s, paramedics, and doctors. They respond to approximately 12,000 emergency calls each year.
