Track your MDA am­bu­lance

Jerusalem Post - - NEWS - Judy Siegel

Pizza chains and taxi ser­vices did it be­fore – but now Ma­gen David Adom has, via global po­si­tion­ing sys­tems, made it pos­si­ble for those who call for an am­bu­lance to fol­low its move­ments with a cel­lu­lar phone un­til ar­rival. MDA said it was the first am­bu­lance ser­vice in the world to of­fer such a thing, call­ing it a “break­through.” The ser­vice will be avail­able for free and be up­dated in re­al­time. A link will be sent to the phone, that leads to a map show­ing the am­bu­lance’s lo­ca­tion from the mo­ment it leaves the sta­tion un­til it reaches its des­ti­na­tion. MDA said this was an­other step to strengthen pub­lic faith in the am­bu­lance, first-aid and blood-sup­ply or­ga­ni­za­tion. •
