NORTH HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — It’s a “Battle of the Badges” in North Haven between community heroes on Friday.
The North Haven Police Department is going up against the town’s fire department to see who can recruit the most people to donate blood.
North Haven Deputy Fire Chief Scott Martus told News 8, “Our police department is phenomenal and we work well together, so doing this as a joint and fighting together to save lives as many lives as possible was something we embraced and look forward to.”
The Red Cross says other police and fire departments across the state have taken part in this competition as well.
You can help out our local heroes by donating blood yourself! The event lasts from 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at the North Haven Police Department.
