Five weeks in and VicPol has hit the front in the Emergency Services Blood Challenge.

An up-date tally of the donation score as of today 8 July 2016, sees VicPol out in front. The numbers are:

VicPol = 295

CFA = 287

Ambulance Vic = 121

VicSES = 81

DELWP/Parks Vic = 60

MFB = 36

With the cold and flu season on us, it's really important that the healthy ones donate to keep up the precious supply, so can I encourage you to donate this weekend not only to get us back in front but to maintaian the blood bank's supplies.

The Red Cross Blood Service supplied some interesting statistics at the end of the financial year 2015-16. The national top ten donor groups were:

Army = 8007

RAAF = 5207

ATO (Australian Tax Office) = 3682

Telstra = 3169

Navy = 3158

Red Cross Blood Service = 2889

Dept Human Services = 2870

CFA = 2733

NAB = 2606

Defense Civilians (APS) = 2504

We are the only state agency in the national top ten - congratulations and keep up the good work!
