The focus of this position is to deliver blood products (whole blood, platelets and plasma) in emergency situations to area hospitals from the Douglasville, Georgia processing facility. The drivers begin and end in Douglasville and they use Red Cross vehicles (small SUV’s and sedans) to make the runs. No special licensing requirements are necessary. Volunteers are needed for the deliveries when a situation has developed and the hospital does not have the required amount of product on hand to adequately serve their patient population. Volunteers do need to be able to do some bending and light lifting in order to get the storage containers in and out of the vehicles. This is also an opportunity for couples to volunteer together because there is also a navigator position available to assist with directions, paperwork and delivery. The emphasis to volunteers is that you are helping to save lives on an immediate basis.

2. Enter your zip code and select "Biomedical" in the left column
3. Click the "Blood Service Transportation Specialist" position
