Video: Battle of the Badges Blood Drive Declares WinnerPosted:
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – The Battle of the Badges blood drive competition took place Thursday in Atlantic City with the help of police and firemen drawing in donors.
The friendly competition between The Atlantic City Police Department and the Atlantic City Fire Department was to see who could bring in the most blood donations for the American Red Cross. As people came in to donate, they would declare which team they were representing.
Both sides did what they could to invite participants to donate in order to win. However, at the end of the event the Atlantic City Fire Department was declared the winner
While the firefighters win bragging rights, the American Red Cross is the actual big winner as both departments brought in dozens of donations for Thursday's blood drive. Each donation can help save the lives of up to three people.
