Fire department named winner of "Battle of the Badges" for third straight year
The Breckenridge Fire Department were announced as the winner of this year’s “Battle of the Badges,” a blood drive hosted by the Rotary Club and Carter Bloodcare. This win marks their third straight year as the winners.
The term “Battle of the Badges,” comes from a program held by several communities across the U.S., which involves competition between the sheriff, police and fire department of a local community. When someone donates for the blood drive, they do it in honor of one of those three departments. Whoever has the most donated in their name is the winner. This marked the third year it was held in Breckenridge.
