Description

Did you know that every two seconds someone needs a blood transfusion? The Sheriff's Office is hosting it's 3rd Annual Battle of the Badges Blood Drive at the new Sheriff's Headquarters (Cigna Building) with the Central California Blood Center's mobile donation unit on Tues., November 7, 10:00 a.m.- 2:00 p.m. You may make an appointment to donate blood today!

Please reserve an appointment time to donate; the appointment times are set up for every 15 minutes. The mobile blood unit will be located in the North side parking lot of the Sheriff's Headquartes ( Cigna Building). This event is open to the public as well as all employees of Tulare County.

Every two seconds, someone needs a blood transfusion. Although an estimated 38% of the U.S. population is eligible, less than 10% donate.

Why donate blood? According to the World Health Organization (WHO), donated blood can save the lives and improve the health of the many people that require transfusions every day. Blood can only be stored for a limited time before it is no longer usable, which is why there is a constant need for donated blood. Regular blood donations help to ensure that safe blood will be available when and where it’s needed.
