Hatzolah should be called for any medical emergency, 24/7/365, including Shabbos, Yom Tov and Yom Kippur. If you are unsure that Hatzolah should be called, make the call.

During an emergency, and especially on Shabbos, some people have a tendency to search for a Hatzolah member they are familiar with by going to their home, shul, or calling them on the phone. This can result in significant delays in obtaining help and is strongly discouraged. Calling the Hatzolah emergency number is the most reliable way to obtain help quickly.
