I’ve been hearing sirens (hatzaloh and ambulances) all day long these past few days. Anyone else? My blood pressure spikes every time..this is how they described Italy. Are there really so many corona emergencies or other stuff? (Sad and scary either way!)

Some are panic calls
Some are Women in labor
There are other reasons
We had an accident on our corner in bp

Not sure about Flatbush, but many other hatzalahs gave out statements that they are getting an overload of panic calls over things no one would dream about calling in other times.

I also think that , with traffic diminished and most people staying indoors, there's less noise. Therefore we hear every siren.

I dispatch for Hatzolah in a different state. Yes, call volume is up. Yes, some are panic calls. However, let me be clear, there are many that are legitimate.
Please everyone take this seriously. Stay home. Stay home.
If you have access to PPE that is not needed for medically necessary activity, please consider donating to your local hospitals or Hatzolah.

I went for a walk around my block in marine park. 4 ambulances past with sirens. And 1 stopped and the paramedics suited up before helping an older man in distress on his front porch

Dh is on hatzolah, not in flatbush. Legitimate call volume increase and fewer and fewer members able to take calls. They are stretched to the max.

I keep trying to ignore the news in order to preserve my mental health, but I still keep hearing his radio.....

Do you live near me? J and Nostrand? I've been hearing them non stop since last Friday.

My mother a few blocks away says she doesn't hear them.

Spoke to hatazalah nyc member today for 20 minutes, literally. Radio did not stop for a second. Almost all calls said personal protective equipment.
