די באקאנטע סימבאל פון די אמבולענס הייסט די "סטאר אוו לייף", דאס איז א סטאר און אימיטן איז דא א שלאנג אויף\ארום א שטעקן. דאס נעמט זיך פון די נחש הנחושת, וואס איז געווען מסוגל אויף רפואה.
The snake emblem is a symbol from the biblical account of the bronze snake found in Numbers 21:4-9. The Israelites grumbled against God and Moses for bringing them out of slavery in Egypt and into the desert. Specifically, the text says, "the people grew impatient on the way." As a result of their ungratefulness, God sent venomous snakes among them and many that were bitten died.
However, the people came to Moses and repented of their sin and God had mercy upon them. He commanded Moses to make a snake, put it upon a pole, and all who looked upon it would be healed. So Moses fashioned a bronze snake and put it up on a pole for all to see it and live. It was thereafter seen as symbol of healing.
Hundreds of years later, King Hezekiah of Judah (2 Kings 18:4), destroyed the idols and sacred stones the Israelites had come to worship. He took the bronze snake Moses had made and broke it into pieces because the people burned incense to it. The staff was called Nehushtan.
