Our Mission

Hatzolah Darom endeavors to save lives and ease pain, by training and equipping volunteers to respond to the emergency needs of the residents of Southern Israel.

The continuing emergency in Southern Israel shows no signs of let-up, putting life and limb in danger. Kassam rockets, as well as accidents on the high-speed highways, heart attacks, serious injuries in the home, school or workplace, call for well-equipped and dedicated first responders. That’s where Hatzolah Darom plays a key role – galvanizing a team of trained volunteers who are ready 24/7 to speed to the scene and render first aid.

Add to this the fact that there are only 3 hospitals to serve this far-flung region, which means ambulance wait times that can make the difference between life and death. That’s where Hatzolah Darom comes in – with its dedicated, certified first responders, working in tandem with Magen David Adom and local municipalities to be there in the first golden minutes and save lives.
