Our local first responders stop at nothing to save lives and that’s why these badge holders are facing off for the 21st annual South Valley Battle of the Badges. As they have for the last several years, Firefighters, Police, Forestry, Sheriff, Corrections, Fish & Wildlife, Highway Patrol and other badge-carrying emergency personnel will compete to save the most lives through blood donations.
In 2021, these entities saved over 2,200 lives in just one month. This year we’re hoping to reach a new milestone to save 2,500 lives.
This year it’ll take place November 1st through December 1st at the Central California Blood Center in Visalia. In addition, mobile drives will be held across Fresno, Tulare, and Kings Counties for those who cannot make it to a donor center. The public is invited to participate and pledge their pint for their favorite badge-carrying group! Together, Life Flows From Here.
