Mattis Shapira, Chapter Head of United Hatzalah in Uman said, "Thankfully there were no 'out-of-the-ordinary' events that took place over the course of the holiday. We had 576 calls that reached our dispatch and command center over the course of the holiday and our volunteers responded treating many of the people at the emergency scene.
