First Responders


First responders are charged with the duty to do all they can to save lives. Yet there are times when the call is too late or the injury too grave to make that possible. At that time it is helpful to know that families may be offered the option of ocular donation and sharing the Gift of Sight.

Through our in-service you will understand:

  • • The need for donation
  • • The donation process including:
  • • Donor suitability
  • • Timing of consent and recovery
  • • Who to contact
  • • Who will speak to the family regarding donation
