KFD received more votes than KPD for second straight year during event for a good cause
KILLEEN, Texas (Oct. 13, 2022) – The City of Killeen Police Department personnel will be washing vehicles of our Killeen Fire Department this Friday, Oct. 14, at 3 p.m., following the City’s Battle of the Badges blood drive this August.
The City’s police (badges) and fire department (boots) partnered with Carter BloodCare to host the Battle of the Badges Blood Drive on Aug. 18.
The public was invited to donate blood, then cast their vote for their favorite department—boots or badges. This year, the fire department earned a second-straight victory, edging the police, 48-42. The Police Department will now have to wash the company vehicles of the Fire Department Friday at Central Fire Station at 3p.m.
Of course, there’s no real “loser,” as both departments joined in the life-saving battle to help the community donate 92 units of blood, which can save about 276 lives.
We thank the community for their support and encourage everyone to continue to participate in future blood drives.
