Officials at United Blood Services are asking anyone with O-negative blood to donate blood as soon as possible.

O-negative reserves are down to a less than one day supply.

This type of blood is a blood that anyone can accept.

Mitzi Breaux, Marketing & Communications Manager, United Blood Services, says, "O- negative blood can be given to anyone, regardless of their blood type, in an extreme emergency situation when there is no time to crossmatch the donor's blood with the patient's."
