Ever wonder how long it will take till the ambulance arrives?

Magen David Adom Israel has entered the 21st century (CE) with a new GPS service that allows anxiously waiting families and others to track the route of their ambulances up to arrival.

The new service began June 1, allowing a caller to see where the ambulance is via a link that is sent to the caller’s mobile phone from the dispatch center.

A text message containing the hyperlink is sent by the dispatch computer system to the caller’s phone, connecting the caller with a map that helps track the location of the assigned vehicle.

  1. A great anxiety reliever for the people/family/friends waiting for an ambulance. I don't wish harm on anyone but if you happen to be in a situation where you are waiting for the arrival of an ambulance this new technology will be a G-d send. Mazeltov to the inventor/s!! No doubt it will (should) be exported.
