Belvidere police and firefighters battle to give blood


Members of the Belvidere police and fire departments faced off on Thursday in an effort to save lives.

The two departments each held competing blood drives their semi-annual competition, Battle of the Badges. The department with the most donations gets to proudly display the traveling trophy, at least until the next competition.

The Battle of the Badges began in 2007 and the blood drives were hosted with the Rock River Valley Blood center.
