The Miles Nadal Family Square
Renowned International Philanthropist Miles S Nadal and his Family, who previously donated 10 ambucycles to Israel’s national volunteer EMS organization United Hatzalah, has now donated the new Miles S Nadal Family Square outside the organization’s Jerusalem headquarters. The organization uses the Beautiful Garden for all of its vehicle dedications that take place in Jerusalem.
Having met Eli Beer and seeing the zeal of the man who founded and runs Israel’s largest all-volunteer EMS organization, Nadal heard about and recognized the need to expedite emergency services to those in need. It is for this reason that Nadal donated to the furthering of United Hatzalah’s ambucycle unit. Since their inception, the use of ambucycles for first response has proven to be a critical link in the emergency chain of survival, allowing rescue personnel immediate access to the scene or home of a patient.
The success of the ambucycle unit is proven in the numbers, with response time averaging 90 seconds as drivers can avoid traffic, road closures and parking limitations. A volunteer with an ambucycle receives 40 calls a month and on average saves 120 lives a year. The Miles Nadal fleet of ambucycles is saving on average 1,120 lives a year.
Miles Nadal commented “From the first time I met Eli, and I saw the extraordinary work of United Hatzalah and the remarkable volunteers, I was overwhelmed by the importance of this incredible organization and its impact on all communities that they serve. My family and I felt honored and privileged to be able to commit our time, talent and treasure to help foster the further growth and prosperity of their life-saving efforts.”
