OneBlood reached out to the blood center in Nevada early this morning to let them know we stand ready to assist if they need help. We are in the process of preparing a shipment of blood and platelets to be sent to them as soon as possible and remain on standby to assist further if needed.
OneBlood encourages all eligible blood donors to make blood donation a regular part of their lives. This will enable a ready blood supply locally and for OneBlood to help wherever the need may arise.
To find a donor center or Big Red Bus near you simply visit www.oneblood.org.
Generally healthy people age 16 or older who weigh at least 110 pounds can donate blood. To learn more about the importance of blood donation and how donors can target the power of their blood type visit oneblood.org.
