At this time, the blood supply that is currently available to East, Central and North Texas is at a critically low level. Critically low levels means there is less than a day's worth of blood available to patients whose lives could be in jeopardy. Blood is used every day for transfusions and surgeries within the hospital. If you are ever in any kind of accident and rushed to the ER, you will need blood. If there were some kind of natural disaster that caused multiple severe injuries, people will need blood.
