The entire Crown Heights community is invited to attend the groundbreaking ceremony of Hatzalah’s new home at 533 Albany Avenue, today at 1:00 PM. Parts of Albany Ave will be closed for the occasion.
For 45 years, Hatzalah of Crown Heights has served the Anash community. Twenty-four hours a day, every day of the year without exception, Hatzalah has been there, saving the lives of countless individuals and providing critical assistance and assurance to so many more.
With the rapid growth and expansion of the Crown Heights community KA”H, keeping up with the increasing demand, Hatzalah has to take things to a new level.
Hatzalah’s logistical needs are complex. Careful coordination is required to quickly get vehicles and personnel to any location in the neighborhood. Response vehicles must be constantly stocked with adequate power, fuel, and critical supplies. When lives are at stake, there is no time to waste.
For decades, Hatzalah has done all this with a piecemeal infrastructure spread across a collection of randomly available offices, basements and storage units. Its ambulances are parked on various streets, subject to the tides of Brooklyn congestion and parking frustrations.
Today, 24 Adar Beis / March 27, the entire community is invited to attend the groundbreaking ceremony of Hatzalah’s new home in front of the new building location at 533 Albany Avenue.
With shovels to the ground, Hatzalah is moving one step closer to bringing their trademark exemplary, professional, and hartzige care to new levels for the community. For all those moments when Hatzalah was there for you, a loved one, a friend, or anyone else in the community, this is an opportunity to be there for Hatzalah—not in an ambulance chas ve’shalom, but with hope and joy as we celebrate together.
Albany Ave from Maple Ave to East New York Ave will be closed today from 8:00 am through 4:00 pm for the Hatzalah Garage groundbreaking.
