MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
On September 20, 94 officers and cadets of the State Fire Service Academy of the EMERCOM of Russia took part in the “Drop of Blood” action organized by the Power of Faith charity foundation.
Before the start of the procedure, all donors underwent a medical examination. As doctors note, EMERCOM employees and cadets are highly valued as donors. Their high physical fitness and special health requirements, to which they pay close attention, guarantee the quality and safety of blood.
Many employees and students of the university donate blood to those in need on an ongoing basis. The very procedure for donating blood and its components, together with preparation, examination and express tests, takes no more than 30 minutes. In total, during the action, volunteers donated more than 42 liters of blood, which will be used to help patients of the children’s oncology department of the Balashikha hospital.
