Emergency services challenge

This winter, Police, Fire, Ambulance and the SES are again competing by service and state to give the most blood donations during the Emergency Services Blood Challenge 2018.

Last year, they made an amazing 9,422 donations altogether. Since each donation saves up to three lives, that’s up to 28,266 lives saved.

Congratulations to Victoria Police who made the most donations last year. Who will take the title in 2018? Join the challenge and help your crew beat the other states and services.
