On Wednesday 1 June DCO Steve Warrington and Captian Koala assisted with the Launch of this year Emergency Services Blood Challenge.

Captian Koala (Susan Kidnie) and three other 'Mascots' (VicPOL, VicSES, and the Red Cross Blood Drop) lined up to donate at the launch of this years ESO Challenge.  The launch was held at the Red Cross Blood Services New Collins Street donor centre and was reported on the CH7 News that evening. 

Although early into the challenge - as of week 1 = CFA has 13 donations recorded, followed by:-

VicPOL = 6

Ambulance Victoria (AV) = 5

DELWP = 4

VicSES = 3

MFB = 1

The challenge runs for 3 months over the 'winter' when the Blood supplies get to there the lowests levels due to the winter cold & flu season, so can I encourage all 'healthy' CFA Staff & Volunteers to donate and record your donation with Red25 - CFA over the next three months!
