North Las Vegas Police, Fire join together for ‘Battle of the Badges blood drive

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Friendly competition brought crew members from the North Las Vegas Police Department and Fire Department together for a good cause.

The Red Cross ‘Battle of the Badges’ blood drive asked both agencies to encourage blood donations.

Then donors voted for their favorite agency before giving blood, and the team of first responders with the most votes was declared the winner at the end of the drive.

Victor Mancilla the public education specialist for the City of North Las Vegas says the event brings out a fun and competitive streak in many who participate.
