Outside of work, Shalom Lamm acts as an active member of his community, and is the co-founder of the Hatzoloh Volunteer Medical Squad, an emergency ambulance service that consists of emergency medical technicians and paramedics for the residents of Manhattan’s Upper West Side.
Emergency medical practitioners are responsible for acting promptly to emergencies. According to the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians, there are four different types of emergency medical practitioners.
Emergency medical responders (EMRs) possess lifesaving skills and can treat critical patients at the scene of an incident. EMRs are often part of firefighting, law enforcement, and medical response teams.
Emergency medical technicians (EMTs) specialize in two aspects of emergency treatment. One is dealing with critical patients, and the other is transporting them to a medical facility. To practice as an EMT, one must complete a certified course.
Advanced emergency medical technicians are a level advanced beyond EMTs because of their ability to perform on-site medicinal support and other advanced medical interventions.
Finally, paramedics are the most highly skilled emergency medical technicians. They can not only safely transport a patient, but also perform advanced invasive medical procedures and use medicines to treat patients on site.
A community-focused New York real estate executive, Shalom Lamm has successfully spearheaded the acquisition, financing, development, and rehabilitation of over 9,500 apartment units across various states in the U.S. Shalom Lamm is a member of the Young Israel of West Hempstead and serves as a member of its Chevra Kadisha.
Chevra kadisha literally means sacred society. It is the group of volunteers that perform burial rites for a deceased Jewish individual. After a Jew passes away, the chevra kadisha prepares the body for burial. The process is called tahara, which means purification. It involves ritual cleaning, grooming, and clothing the body in a plain white shroud or kittel, as well as other garments.
In Jewish societies, those who volunteer to be members of chevra kadisha are highly regarded as not many people are willing to join the sacred society. Aside from performing ritual cleaning of the body, contemporary chevra kadisha also typically coordinates with families, hospitals, cemeteries, and funeral parlors to ensure that their deceased brother or sister is treated with respect and dignity. Traditionally, the chevra kadisha’s work starts with visiting people at their deathbed and continues until after the burial.
