93Queen - All-Female EMT Corps

Until relatively recently, women living in the largest Hasidic community in America could expect a team of men to show up when they needed an ambulance—a potentially compromising proposition. To make the Orthodox women of Brooklyn's Borough Park neighborhood feel more comfortable in a medical emergency, lawyer Rachel "Ruchie" Freier founded an all-woman Hasidic EMT corps.93Queen, directed by Paula Eiselt and produced by Eiselt and Heidi Reinberg, makes its national broadcast premiere on the PBS documentary series POV and pov.org on Monday, September 17 at 10 PM (check local listings).
