Los Angeles (Sep. 20, 2022) – On Monday, Flyer Defense was recognized at United Hatzalah’s 3rd Annual Los Angeles Gala after pledging to donate a Flyer 72 rescue vehicle to the Israel-based volunteer emergency medical services provider.
The donation, valued at $500,000, is a configuration of the Flyer 72-Light Duty that can safely carry up to six litters and five passengers.
“We are honored to take part in such an important and worthy cause,” said Flyer CEO and Founder Oded Nechushtan. “With its superior off-road capabilities, the Flyer vehicle will enable United Hatzalah volunteers to reach remote areas in Israel where emergency medical services may not have been as readily accessible otherwise. We are proud to help bridge that gap.”
Headquartered in Jerusalem, United Hatzalah volunteers provide free, emergency medical services in Israel with an impressive response time of three minutes across the country and 90 seconds in metropolitan areas.
