About Riverdale Hatzalah

We are your neighbors.  Since 1989, our dedicated volunteer EMTs and paramedics have provided non-profit emergency medical response and high quality care to the Riverdale community and surrounding area, 24 hours a day. 

 

Our 55 responders are trained and certified to the highest state and national standards, and are equipped with the latest emergency equipment, including cardiac defibrillators and lifesaving medications. 

 

We operate an innovative 2-tier response system that allows us to rapidly respond to emergencies in our service area by utilizing both ambulances and first response vehicles located throughout the community. 

Why do our responders volunteer their time?  Why do we spend hundreds of hours in medical training?  Why do we leave our families in the middle of the cold winter nights?  Because we're your neighbors.
