FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) - In an effort to increase blood supply this holiday season, area first-responders square-off to see which department donates the most units of blood.

Friday marks day five of the 'Battle of the Badges', the fire and ambulance team is leading the police and sheriff team, 168 units to 135.

The goal of the campaign is to collect 1,200 units of life-saving blood.

You can get involved by rolling up your sleeve and donating, then vote for your favorite branch of emergency service. The blood drive begins Monday December 10th to the 22nd. There are two locations were you can donate, Fort Wayne Donor Center (1212 E. California Rd.) and Lutheran Hospital Donor Center (7900 W. Jefferson Blvd. Suite 107).
