Friendly Firehouse rivalry benfits local Blood Bank, 7th Annual Bucket Brigade Blood Drive comes to Geyserville

Tuesday, January 1st, 2013 | Posted by | one response

Geyserville Fire Protection District  once again prepare to win the coveted Bucket Brigade Blood Drive trophy and bragging rights.

Participating firehouses from Lake, Mendocino and Sonoma Counties will hold Bucket Brigade Blood Drives between December and January, with a winner announced in February.

The notion of a Bucket Brigade originates from the Great London Fire of 1666, where lines of townspeople created “brigades,” passing buckets of water from the town’s water source to the fires that threatened their community.  This contemporary Bucket Brigade brings our community together in the same way – not to fight fire, but to save lives through blood donation.

“The Bucket Brigade was designed to boost the blood supply in December and January when donations are traditionally low due to weather, holidays and the flu season,” says Andrea Casson, Blood Centers of the Pacific Senior Account Representative.  “Over the years, nearly 7,000 donors have participated. We are grateful for the strong community spirit of our local firefighters and residents.”  

Geyserville Fire Procection DistrictThe Geyserville Fire Protection District will hold the local Bucket Brigade Blood Drive on Friday  Jan. 4, 2:30-7:30 p.m. at the Geyserville Fire House, 20975 Geyserville Avenue.
