The United Blood Services has announced the winners of their recent Sirens for Life blood drive that was held January 3 - 5, 2018. 

The drive pitted teams of first responders from around the Lafayette area together in a race to see who could get the most blood donations. UBS says that over 160 donations were collected during the three-day drive, and now that all the points have been tallied can officially announce the winners.

This year's winners are Sheriff Mark Garber and the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Department. 107 donations were made for the team out of the 162 received. UBS also says that the public can still donate in support of their favorite first responders. 

Donors can give blood at the UBS office located at 1503 Bertrand Drive in Lafayette. Donors also have the opportunity to pledge to be a first blood responder at pledgetosave.com
