O Negative blood supply has reached very low levels due to summer vacations and school and college summer breaks.

An immediate appeal is being issued for all O Negative donors to donate at OneBlood, the local blood center, as soon as possible.

Crestview's location is 2400 S. Ferdon Blvd. Suite B.

Any patient can receive O Negative blood, regardless of the recipient’s blood type. O Negative is critical for trauma patients, premature babies and emergency surgeries.

Generally healthy people age 16 or older who weigh at least 110 pounds can donate blood.
