10 Broadcaster Press February 23, 2016 www.broadcasteronline.com Battle of the Badges Huge Success Vermillion Fire Department / EMS and the Vermillion Law Enforcement went head to head in the 10th annual Heroes Behind the Badges blood drive event on January 25. The friendly competition was a way to encourage the community to help boost the local blood supply. The departments competed to see who could recruit the most blood donors. In the end it was the Vermillion Fire Department / EMS coming out with the win at 50 donation votes vs. the Vermillion Law Enforcement with 30 donations votes. Traditionally, blood supplies are at low levels during the winter months. With the flu season and in climate weather, many people are not able to get out to donate blood. The only way to make sure that blood is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week is through regular volunteer blood donations and support of your local hospital’s blood bank. “This blood drive ensures that blood is available for patients at Sanford Vermillion through the rest of the winter months,” states Ken Versteeg, Executive Director, Community Blood Bank. “Each donation will impact up to three patients’ lives in the community. It is a privilege to serve Vermillion area patients for over 18 years and encourage the community to help us by donating on the bloodmobile when we visit Vermillion.” Community Blood Bank is a non-profit cooperative of Avera McKennan and Sanford Health. Community Blood Bank is the sole provider of blood and blood products for 34 local hospitals including Sanford Vermillion, Sanford Medical Center, Avera McKennan Hospital, VA Medical Center, and Avera Heart Hospital of South Dakota. Donors must be at least 17 years old (16 years old with parent consent form, found at cbblifeblood.org) weigh 110 lbs. or more and be in good general health. Please bring an ID with you. It is recommended that a person eat and drink plenty of fluids prior to donating blood. H 0 0 k with the employment ads the right bp Since 1934 in the Broadcaster Press 201 W.
