Ilocos cops donate blood

By Freddie G. Lazaro

Camp BGen Oscar M. Florendo, La Union (12 November) -- A total of one hundred policemen from the different police units in Ilocos region volunteered to donate their blood in a recent blood-letting activity held here, it was reported.

Chief Superintendent Luizo C Ticman, Police Regional Director in Region I, reported Wednesday that fifty volunteers were came from the police trainees in Regional Training School 1 based in Aringay, La Union while the other 50 donors were came from the La Union Police Provincial Office and the Regional Mobile Group 1.

"The activity also aims to raise the consciousness of every policeman to do a very noble and heroic act not only in law enforcement but by way of donating blood to save lives of other people," Ticman said.

He disclosed that the simultaneous bloodletting activity is in support of the National Blood Donation activity and in response to the Memorandum of Agreement between the PNP and the Philippine Blood Center.

The MOA's primary objective is to solicit blood from volunteers, which will be allotted for the emergency needs of PNP personnel, their dependents and private recipients.

Ms. Idina Frigillana, Coordinator of the Ilocos Training and Regional Medical Center-National Voluntary Blood Service Program (ITRMC-NVBSP), said the blood were stored at the different government hospitals' respective blood service facility.

Frigillana also stressed that regular blood donation is a healthy practice.

"Aside from helping patients, who need blood transfusion, blood donors are regenerating their own blood as well they will know their medical condition," Frigillana told. (PIA Ilocos Sur) [top]
