FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - The results are in! The Fargo Fire Department and Police Department faced off during the 3rd Annual “Battle of the Badges” blood drive, on Sept. 27.

This year, Fargo PD took home the gold. People could vote for their favorite first responder team after their donation. It was hosted by the Red Cross of Fargo.

This year was a tie-breaker, and FPD came out ahead. 36 units of blood were collected, surpassing the goal for the event.

The lead of donor recruitment at the Red Cross, Brenda Coyer, says, “It’s neither, who wins or doesn’t win, it’s, ‘let’s get everybody together and donate some blood and help us get the blood supply to a stable condition again’.”

Fargo Police say, the real champions were the people who showed up to support our first responders and the people this blood will help.
