Beavercreek cops burned in bloody battle with firefighters

Beavercreek's firefighters are out for more blood than its police, and that is a good thing.

For the the second year, Beavercreek Twp. Fire Department bested Beavercreek police in Battle of the Badges.

Peace Lutheran Church sponsored the Community Blood Center blood drive Monday.

Participants cast secret ballots to support either police or fire department.

The blood center says 101 people registered to donate. Firefighters received 52 votes while police nabbed just 33 for police.

The community was the real winner.

The Community Blood Center received 87 donations.

Here is what you need to know to donate to the Community Blood Center:
