As many as 500 lives could be saved because of a donation drive.

As many as 500 lives could be saved because of a donation drive.

The 2013 Sirens for Life campaign wrapped up on Thursday and 167 units of blood were donated, which Canadian Blood Services can use to save up to 501 lives.

The City of Red Deer Emergency Services and the Red Deer RCMP contributed a total of 80 staff blood donations throughout January.

Residents topped the Emergency Services workers and RCMP with 87 blood donations in January.

Even though the RCMP, Emergency Services and residents combined for 167 donations, there is still a need for blood. Canadian Blood Services would like Red Deer residents to continue donating blood for patients in need.

To donate, call 1-888-236-6283 or visit to make a donation appointment.

The Red Deer blood donor clinic is located in Bay 5 at 5020 68th St.
