Sirens for Life Summer 2017 Launch - June 29, 2017
Emergency services workers often see the need for blood firsthand—just one patient with internal bleeding may need up to eight blood donors to help save their life.
   
The Winnipeg Police Service, RCMP, Winnipeg Fire Paremedic Service, STARS Air Ambulance, and Manitoba Corrections workers are joining forces to ensure patients receive the blood they need through the Sirens for Life summer blood donor drive.
   
With the help of community members, emergency services workers will top up Canada's blood supply
   
The Sirens for Life campaign runs from June 29 - August 5, 2017.
   
Anyone wishing to participate in the Blood Challenge is requested to contact Canadian Blood Services at (1-888-2-DONATE) 1-838-236-6283 or at https://www.blood.ca to book your appointment. Walk-ins are also welcome.
   
When you donate at the clinic, please indicate that you are participating in the 2017 Sirens for Life Blood Challenge.
   
Every minute of every day someone in Canada needs blood. Let's do our part in ensuring an adequate supply of blood is available to all citizens by donating today.
