Emergency Need for Blood Donors

Posted: Updated:

BILLINGS - United Blood Services announced they have an emergency need for O negative blood donors.

There have been blood supply issues lately due to the winter storms that have moved through the region over the past couple of weeks, limiting how much could be collected at donation sites.

O-negative blood is particularly unique because it is the universal blood type that can be received by anyone.

As of this morning, United Blood Services said they have over 150 orders for O negative blood from area hospitals asking to be filled.
