Murfreesboro, TN—Murfreesboro Fire Rescue Department (#teamfire) wins the traveling trophy for the first annual “Battle of the Badges” blood drive.

MFRD competed against Murfreesboro Police Department (#teampolice) in partnership with the American Red Cross to produce exceptional results.

According to Zelle Chandler, Market Manager for American Red Cross Blood Services, both departments assisted the local blood donation center in exceeding their daily goals for blood products. The blood only donation goal for the 5-day drive was exceeded by 17 percent and the blood products goal (platelets and blood) went 27 percent over goal!

A total of 25 people donated for #teampolice and 35 for #teamfire. Both departments agree that the real “winners” are those who benefit from these blood donations. The Red Cross estimates that each donation can help save up to three lives.
