Tallies for the 2018 Battle of the Badges clearly indicate Plano Police received the most arm votes over Fire-Rescue! But it’s always a win for the City when these public safety giants team-up, and this year’s blood drive competition was an epic battle for sure. To the victor, Plano Police, goes the trophy with 399 votes!
Donors were asked to cast votes for one of the two departments after giving blood during the eight-day event, which for a number of citizens was a difficult choice to make. One of the people who donated blood posted this comment on Facebook, “Congrats to the Police department. I honestly didn't know who to vote for since I love both departments equally. I just closed my eyes, and whichever department was closest to the pen got my vote.”
A total of 541 units of blood were collected during Battle of the Badges, having the potential to save 1,623 lives.
Thanks to everyone who gave blood and KUDOS to the great partnership of Plano’s peace officers and firefighters.
