Easy to get accepted in queens, and even easier if your a paramedic.
I'm not who you think I am.

I think I'm moving to queens! ;)
   If it's quite hard getting  onto Hatzalah, what about a previous member from another location?
 For example a Lakewood member who moved to Flatbush or vice versa? Assuming that would help? Or a member from queens to Flatbush?
  If you're doing that move just to join the location you want then you gotta be pretty desperate.
   
  Curios does Hatzalah allow a Lakewood member to get a number in the Flatbush as well if he comes or works in Flatbush or Manhattan during the week?
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

but they changed the rules recently that you can't practice till you get your card
so dumb. The Corp/company anyhow has to verify you with the DOH so they see (as soon as it's in the system) if you are licensed or not

so it's all basically pull and connection to get on?
Yes. Unless you live really far out where they have no coverage, or one of the easier neighborhoods in the city (canarsie, SI if old enough, ES/WS) and being a medic doesn't necessarily help, Hatzolah needs nobody ::)  except your money.... That they"ll always gladly take.

Correct me if I'm wrong but you can only do CMEs if you are part of an organization.

1. I'm not married

The two possible solutions are:

1. Find a shidduch and get married.
2. Become a Paramedic. (IINM Hatzolah can use more paramedics, and will accept unmarried paramedics).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Shmulie.

I know where you are coming from (a good place i'm sure) and I know what you are thinking and where you want to go. I'd rather not air out that much dirty laundry on here, so we can take it to Pm and you can call me if you have any further questions. However I''ll lay out some info here for everyone. I''ll try to keep it pareve, because i'd rather not bash them in public.

Hatzolah in many neighborhoods has become and exclusive club, you can't get in unless you are very connected to someone, or come with a lot of money, or if you are in an area that they are really really struggling.

Also they are mostly run like personal fiefdoms therefore what may seem logical and simple just doesn't happen. For example, I know many medics that are/were current members of various hatzolahs that they refused to let them ride as medics (they had to ride as emt's) simply because that's what the person in charge wanted. Only after much fighting, rabbonim etc did they get bumped up.

With that said - I would not change your life radically (e.g. move neighborhoods/take a paramedic course instead of yeshiva/etc) IN THE HOPES that you one day may be able to join hatzolah, many have gotten burned, and as overall their stance is they simply don't need you etc you most likely will be burned out and frustrated.

Chesed can be done in many other organizations that desperately need your help. I know (been an EMT for a few years now) that rolling to jobs and doing chesed at the same time is super awesome, but don't base your life around an organization that's stance is that they don't need you, and you"ll spend years trying to prove otherwise.

One thing I forgot to mention is, this is not judgment at all on the hundreds of wonderful members that drop everything and give untold hours to save lives, simply an overall state of the originazation and the people on top.
