The Red Cross Blood Services Emergency Services Challenge commences today 1 June and continues until 31 August. It’s time again for CFA to prove we have what it takes to save the most lives through blood donation. Let's see if we can top VicPol this year.

Just donate to help CFA take out the VIC title!

If you are already part of 'Red25', you don’t need to fill out any forms to have your donations recorded in CFA’s 2015 tally. Just book an appointment and donate blood between 1 June and 31 August. Whether you donate by yourself or with colleagues, every donation you make counts!

If you're not already registered, then Join Country Fire Authority (VIC)’s Red25 group, then Phone 13 14 95 or visit the website to make a blood donation appointment.

Go for gold – donate plasma

Did you know that you can donate plasma as often as every two weeks? It’s a great way to get your challenge tally soaring. Plasma is known as ‘liquid gold’ because it’s used to make 18 different life-saving products, including treatments for cancer, leukaemia, trauma and burns.
