Canadian Blood Services sound the alarm on need for blood

News Jun 27, 2013 Flamborough Review

This summer, Canadian Blood Services (CBS) is partnering with Hamilton’s emergency service personnel for the Sirens for Life summer campaign.

It is estimated that to meet the need of patients across Canada during July and August, CBS will need to collect blood from 150,000 Canadians, including blood from more than 4,500 Hamilton residents.

Just one person who is seriously injured in a car accident can need as many as 50 blood donations to help save their life.

To bring to life this year’s Sirens campaign theme, ‘Someone still needs YOUR help’, Hamilton emergency service workers and CBS recently held a mock car accident to visually demonstrate the chain of people involved in saving the life of just one person, from the first responders to the 50 blood donors.

Donating blood takes about an hour.

Anyone wishing to book an appointment to give blood can do so through www.blood.ca or by calling 1-888-236-6283.
