Make Your Lifesaving Blood Donation with Loudoun County Fire and Rescue on October 9, 2020

FACTR Blood Drive NF 10-9-20

Loudoun County Fire and Rescue is joining Inova Blood Donor Services to host a blood drive at the Oliver Robert “O.R.” Dubé Fire and Rescue Training Academy in Leesburg on Friday, October 9, 2020 and encourages all Loudoun residents to participate.

 Each year hemorrhage or uncontrolled bleeding accounts for nearly 1.9 million deaths worldwide and loss of blood is the leading cause of preventable death from injury. 

As part of the innovative FACT*R (Field Available Coordinated Transfusion Response) program whole blood is now being carried on Emergency Medical Services (EMS) units in both Loudoun and Arlington Counties, a first for Virginia, and the Washington D.C. Metropolitan region. The success of the FACT*R program is directly impacted by the availability of blood from Inova Blood Donor Services and your donations. “Blood products donated through Inova stay local, right here in the Northern Virginia region, so your donation is truly an example of neighbors helping neighbors,” says System Chief Keith H. Johnson.
