This summer has been an atypical one for sure; we have had lots of rain and heat. We have also seen an increase in the need for blood. The need has risen, but the donations have not. The Buffalo Airport Fire Department's mission is to help any and all that are in need. We respond to all types of emergencies. A key point to our mission is not to judge the emergency or if it was an emergency or not based on technical standards but to look at it through the eyes of the person who placed the call for help. For them, it is an emergency.
Connect Life formerly known as Unyts has asked for our help. They have an ongoing emergency, that could affect you or a loved one. That need is for blood. You may not be able to donate on Tuesday, August 20, 2019, but you may know some who can. We would appreciate your donation or spreading the word of this event. It takes one person to start to make a difference.
As a seasoned Flight Paramedic, I see firsthand the effect blood donations make. The injured person we fly into the hospital emergency department life maybe in the balance. Some of the patients require large volumes of blood before they leave the Emergency Department. You can be a difference-maker and provide that pint.
Are you that person?
Please support our blood drive…
