July 30, 2020 - Santa Fe Battle of the Badges Blood Drive
Please join the Santa Fe Fire Department and Police Department for this year's Battle of the Badges Blood Drive. The event will take place on Friday, July 31 and Saturday, August 1, 12pm-4:30pm at the Santa Fe Place Mall in the empty storefront by the food court. This blood drive is a friendly rivalry between Fire/EMS and Law Enforcement in an effort to encourage and maintain suffcient blood resources for our community. Battle of the Badges tee shirts will be given and donors will get to vote for either Fire/EMS or Law Enforcement.
Donors will be spaced a minimum of 6 feet apart and are required to wear a mask/face covering at all times while in the donation area. Donors will also be pre-screened for temperature. Complementary COVID-19 antibody testing on all blood donations are being offered to donors. This test determines if a donor has previously had the virus and is not a test to determine if they are currently infected. If a donor does not feel well or has been exposed to someone that is sick in the previous 14 days, they are asked to stay home and not donate blood.
