Every year the Canadian Blood Services hosts the Sirens for Life Campaign in communities all over the Country in which Fire Fighters, Police and Paramedics compete for the highest number of blood donors during that time.  

HPFFA members donated 75 units of blood during the Sirens for Life campaign this year.  Combined with Hamilton Police & Paramedics, a total of 117 units were donated in the month of July!  Great job Hamilton First Responders! 

In addition to the Sirens for Life Campaign, the HPFFA also hosts an internal Platoon Challenge, to see which Platoon is most willing to roll up their sleeves.

Each Platoon was assigned a date to donate as a group or could donate on any day in July.  Friends and family members were also encouraged to donate on behalf of the Platoon of their choice.

C Platoon once again captured the title for the 2nd year in a row!!!
