United Blood Services Has Issued An Emergency Critical Appeal for O Negative Blood Type
Wednesday, July 14, 2010 • Posted July 14, 2010

This shortage has been continuing and a strong public response is needed to correct this critical situation. O Negative blood transfusion needs of patients in local hospitals will NOT be met as our supply on hand is less than one day. All blood types are needed.

—we have less 1 day’s supply of O negative blood type on our shelf

—the 10 hospitals that we are the sole provider of blood and its products for have a very limited amount on their shelves

—if there was an emergency, we would NOT have the blood on hand

We immediately need your help

Please put this Emergency Critical Appeal on the air or in print immediately. The lives of patients in local hospitals are depending on donors knowing about this Critical — Critical Need!

Must be 16 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds and be in good health to donate.
