As first responders, police, firefighters and paramedics all see the need for blood first hand.
The Sault Ste. Marie Police Service is participating in the Canadian Blood Services Sirens for Life Campaign which is taking place in Sault Ste. Marie on July 22nd and 23rd at the Verdi Hall.
Today Police Chief Robert Keetch donated blood.
The Sirens for Life Campaign, allows staff from these three professions, along with hospital employees, to join together across Canada to ensure patients receive the blood they need this summer.
Did you know that just one patient with internal bleeding may need up to eight blood donors to help save their lives?
