The Victoria Fire Department is organizing its annual City of Victoria Blood Drive from May 17-23 at the South Texas Blood and Tissue Center, and the public is encouraged to participate. To schedule an appointment, visit www.southtexasblood.org or call 210-731-5590 and be sure to mention that you’re donating in honor of EMS Week.
The city hosts the blood drive each year in honor of Emergency Medical Services Week. Donating blood is especially important during the COVID-19 pandemic because blood drives have been cancelled around the nation during the past several weeks, leading to a severe shortage. The Victoria donor room remains open, and staff are taking precautions to protect themselves and donors from exposure to the coronavirus.
