The December 24, 2013 Blood Center Drive at Somers Fire and Rescue Station #1
Somers Fire and Rescue Department hosted a blood drive for the Blood Center of Wisconsin on December 24, 2013 from, 9:00 a.m. to 13:00 p.m. Our goal was "24 units on the 24th" of the gift of life saving blood for the Holiday Season 2013. We fell a couple units short, but are happy that those that took the time from a busy holiday day to donate helped alieviate the shortage of the blood supply that happens around every holiday. The Somers Fire and Rescue Department is looking forward to cooperating with the Blood Center for future blood drives.
Firefighter Dusty Thorpe, one of fifteen Somers Fire and Rescue Personnel who donated blood during this drive, is shown his donating blood. Dusty was one of several members who donated their first units for this drive. Dusty, like other Somers Fire and Rescue members, plans to be a repeat donor.
