If Phoenix residents want to help in the aftermath of the mass shooting in Las Vegas, they should schedule an appointment to donate blood, according to local health officials - it could benefit the scores of wounded concertgoers during the coming days.
"We've almost doubled our daily donations from 30 to 55", said Danna McFadden, the blood bank's supervisor. "We stand ready to help, but we need to have what they need, which most likely will be O negative blood". And show up they did.
At Virginia Blood Services in Salem, James Camper is doing his part to help victims of the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history.
"As I'm seeing people come through the doors of the American Red Cross here in Roanoke, people will come through the doors for any community in need".
The recent tragedy in Las Vegas deeply affected many people. It's nice to see our fellow human beings being willing to roll up their sleeves and donate blood and I think that's a normal thing we get in today's society.
The New York Times reports that lines began forming at Las Vegas blood banks as early as 2 a.m., just hours after the shooting occurred.
"It's really the blood that's on the shelves right now that's saving lives", says Shawn Shields, Senior Director of Donor Recruitment at Lifeblood.
"The answer is giving blood locally", added Aminov.
The nonprofit, which also serves most parts of Georgia, Alabama and SC, encouraged the public to make regular blood donations.
Virginia Blood Services has already shipped hundreds of units of blood to it's sister centers in Las Vegas.
Savage encourages people to continue to donate as victims recover and, of course, help with the typical daily needs for blood. It can take 24-36 hours to collect, test, process and distribute blood where it's needed.
The images from the night of the October 1 mass shooting in Las Vegas drew shock across the nation, but few places in America are as familiar with mass casualty events like Colorado.
