Arutz Sheva visited United Hatzalah of Israel’s main center in Jerusalem, where over 2,000 people volunteer and answer hundreds of phone calls a day in order to save lives.

The center responds to over 650 calls daily from dozens of locations across the country. The 24/7 rescue team uses the “best” and most advanced technology, called the Moskowitz Life Compass. The team also uses the Israeli mobile navigation, Waze, in order for respondents to arrive as fast as possible.

So what else sets this service apart from the rest?

"The difference between us and many other ambulance organizations is that they all charge for their services, and we don't change anyone,” said Eli Beer, President and founder of the organization.
