On April 27, 2022, Washington County Sheriff’s Office’s Deputy Mike Trotter sustained life-threatening injuries after a horrific crash in his patrol car. Deputy Trotter was extracted from his vehicle by Firefighters and Paramedics from Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue and rushed to a local hospital by Metro West Ambulance.

When Deputy Trotter arrived at the hospital, medical staff began working to save his life. Within the first few hours of caring for him, staff used 90 units of blood products on Deputy Trotter to help revive him. 90 units of blood is nearly nine times the amount of blood in the average adult.

Due to the quick thinking and resilience of all first responders and medical staff, Deputy Trotter survived and began his journey to recovery. Deputy Trotter is still severely injured, but he, his family, and the Washington County Sheriff’s Office have organized a blood drive in partnership with Bloodworks Northwest to help give back to others.

Friends, family, and community members are invited to participate at any public Bloodworks Northwest location throughout the Pacific Northwest. Make sure to schedule your appointment in advance and know your donation will make a difference and could save a life.

On the day of your donation, mention Deputy Mike Trotter’s name or share the Donor Code 5453 (Deputy Trotter’s call sign) when you check-in for your appointment.
