First Responders Compete In 'Battle Of The Badges' Blood Drive In Sapulpa

Posted: Updated:
SAPULPA, Oklahoma -

Oklahoma emergency responders are finding more ways to give back to the community.

Sapulpa police, fire, and paramedics competed in their first-ever Battle of the Badges Blood Drive at the Sapulpa Fire Department on Tuesday.

Organizers say that, usually, 20 percent of donors are high school aged kids.  With school out, they don’t have as many donors.

“We get to see vehicle accidents and the people who need the blood, we get to see the demand for it,” said Fire Chief David Taylor.  “This is just another way that we can help out.

Right now, the American Red Cross says it is low on O-negative blood.

To find a Red Cross blood drive and make an appointment to give, simply download the free Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit RedCrossBlood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
