Blood Centers Call for Type O Negative Donations for San Bruno Victims

With numerous victims still in need of blood from the Pacific Gas & Electric Co. (NYSE:PCG) natural gas explosion in San Bruno, California, blood centers are requesting donations of type O negative blood to meet the growing need.

Type O negative is the type of blood which can be used for anyone in case of emergencies.

There are enough supplies temporarily, as the blood center can get blood from other hospitals, but concerns are over what will happen in the next day or two if supplies run short, which they are in danger of doing.

Blood center spokeswoman Lisa Bloch said, "We'll juggle blood from other hospitals to make sure that they're covered, but the problem becomes what happens tomorrow and over the weekend."

Dozens of people have been injured from the explosion, some more severe than others, with four confirmed deaths.

All hospitals treated those injured in the fire currently have enough blood. Blood centers throughout the Bay Area are seeing long lines of people wanting to donate. Blood Centers of the Pacific is urging those wishing to give to do so next week and in the coming weeks to replenish the blood being used now. For updates, visit our facebook page:
Thank you.
