They're calling it the "Battle of the Badges."
Madsion EMS, fire, and law enforcement are having a healthy competition to benefit the American Red Cross blood drive effort.
Monday, Dec. 9 at the Madison Municipal Complex, you have the chance to donate blood in honor of the team of your choice. The winning team earns bragging rights and a trophy which is currently on display at City Hall.
Donors will get a coupon for a free pork sandwich from LawLer's Barbecue in Madison and the knowledge that you did your civic duty by giving life-saving blood.
“EMS, fire and law enforcement know first-hand how important it is to have blood readily available during emergencies,” said Mark Beddingfield, CEO of the Alabama and Central Gulf Coast Blood Services Region. “This is their chance to join forces and partner with the Red Cross to encourage the community to take on the civic responsibility of blood donation.”
