Police – Fire Rescue square off in friendly competition in Battle of the Badges

Battle of the Badges begins July 4, 2017.

From Plano Police: It’s that time of year again. The annual Battle of the Badges blood drive begins on Tuesday, July 4th and runs through Sunday, July 9th. This is the friendly competition with our public safety partners at Plano Fire-Rescue in an effort to partner with you in collecting blood and saving lives.

We want to encourage everyone to come out and donate blood during that week. All donors, or potential donors who were unable to donate based on Carter Bloodcare restrictions, will receive a gift bag, free t-shirt and the chance to vote for police or police. Oh wait, I think I was supposed to say police or fire.

Regardless, we at the police and fire departments are honored to partner with Rotary in the worthwhile endeavor to help save lives. Attached to this post is the schedule that lists the dates, times and locations blood donations will be accepted toward this Battle of the Badges event.

Thanks for helping us help others in need.
