Tamaqua Ambulance Blood Drive


The Tamaqua Community Ambulance Association will be hosting the Miller-Keystone Blood mobile on Tuesday October 6th from 2 – 7 p.m. at our station on 98 N Railroad Street.  We invite each of you to come out and donate blood.  We ask that you identify yourselves and your organization so we can report which company in the department donated the most.

Please contact our recording secretary at HDCHIC@VERIZON.NET and provide her your name.  She will be keeping track of who shows from what company.

Here are some things to keep in mind to donate:  Must be 17 years of age or older, free of flu type symptoms, more than 56 days after the smallpox vaccination, one year after a new tattoo and must weigh more than 110 pounds.  For a more detailed list visit www.giveapint.org.  You can preregister by using the iScreen! app online.  The process of donating blood takes about one hour from registration to refreshments.

Register to donate from October 1 – October 31 and automatically be entered to WIN a Set of 4 tickets to the PENN STATE vs MICHIGAN Football Game on November 21 from Miller-Keystone blood center (see website for more information).

Please post this in your social quarters, engine room and encourage your members to share with their friends and family.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.
