WESTPORT, Conn. Being an organ or tissue donor helps save lives. Thats the message the Westport Fire Department hopes to spread this April as part of Donate Life Month.
On Wednesday, the department held a kickoff event at fire headquarters in which organ transplant recipients and family members of deceased organ donors spoke.
As a way to generate greater awareness for organ and tissue donation, the department is flying the Donate Life flag outside its headquarters at 515 Post Road E. all month.
