Anyone may need blood at any time. Even someone with a healthy heart may be injured in an accident or require treatment for some other illness. Blood can be stored for only 42 days, so a continual fresh supply is crucial.
Volunteer blood donors must be at least 16 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds and be in good health. Donors who are 16 (and, in some cases, 17) must have signed permission from a parent or guardian.
United Blood Services – Rocky Mountain supplies blood and blood products to over 40 hospitals in Montana, Wyoming and Nebraska. On average, UBS needs over 150 daily donations to ensure its communities have a safe and dependable blood supply.
