Annual Battle of the Badges blood drive

Erlanger LIFE FORCE drive Saturday in Cleveland

LAFAYETTE/RINNGOLD, Georgia (WDEF) – For years, law enforcement in north Georgia have shown some good-natured, bad blood.

The Sheriff’s Offices in neighboring Walker and Catoosa Counties have squared off in an annual Battle of the Badges.

They see which community can donate the most to Blood Assurance.

Summer is often a slow time for blood donations, even though the demand can go up.

If you didn’t get a chance to take part today, Erlanger’s LIFE FORCE is holding a similar drive on Saturday.

Last year, LIFE FORCE performed 300 blood transfusions in their helicopters.

They’ll be at Hickory Grove Shopping Center at 265 Paul Huff Pkwy NW in Cleveland, TN from 10am-3pm.
