No bloodmobile in Ashland today
ASHLAND - The American Red Cross Bloodmobile will not be making its regular monthly visit to the Ashland Central Fire Station today.

“We appreciate the blood donors who support our blood drives in this area. Unfortunately, canceling the May 3 drive was unavoidable,” said Vicki James, executive director of the Red Cross’ Northeast Kentucky Chapter. “The staff training will give the Red Cross updated technology to better serve our donors and partners.
