This is the 15th year for the drive, which began with Fort Pierre Fire donating blood to help Tyler Wilcox, a Stanley County High School student who was battling cancer and needed blood. His dad, Bob, was a member of the department then, and asked members to help out... and we did. Through the 14 yrs, it has taken in 2,459 units of blood for those in need!! A few years ago, we added the Guns vs Hoses (law vs fire) to run the drive, and it has grown exponentially larger. We want this 15th year to be even bigger than the last. Last years' goal was 365 units, with 420 brought in! This years goal is 400, and we are hoping to surpass that!!
Walk-ins are welcome too!
