OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV)--Throughout the week, you may have seen the #supportblue or #supportred on twitter. It's a friendly rivalry among first responders.

For the past seven years, the Red Cross has partnered with Douglas/Sarpy County first responders for the Battle of the Badges.

"We changed format for a couple years, calling it Protect, Save & Serve to create a unified drive, but we our first responders wanted the competition aspect brought back! Law enforcement won the first few years and firefighters won the last time it was a competition," said Katie Marshall, with

Drives have been organized throughout the week. The goal is to collect 150 pints of blood during Battle of the Badges every year.

3. I can't donate plasma; my hemocrit is so high it clogs the machine

But I have donated over ten gallons of blood, so far.

Time to get back in the game.

4. Do something O-positive! Do it for the Doughnut!!

 

I gave yesterday when the blood bus was at my work and this one put me at four gallons so far donated to the San Diego Blood Bank!

Next time in July will be at Comic-Con--they always have the coolest t-shirts, last year's "red" "Your Vein Is My Gain-Save the Vamps!"
