Fire Department awarded blood drive traveling trophy


Firefighters from the Bellefontaine Fire Department recently were awarded a traveling trophy from Logan County Board of Developmental Disabilities representatives following the fire department’s win of the Battle of the Badges blood drive.

The competition was between fire department, Bellefontaine Police Department, and Logan County Sheriff’s Office. In the vote decided by blood drive donors, the three agencies were separated by only one vote each.

The next blood drive will be noon to 4 p.m. Friday, May 16, at the Discovery Center, 1973 W. State Route 47. Every donor will receive an “Honor, Duty, Donor” T-shirt with an American Flag for Memorial Day.

Juice, finger sandwiches and cookies will be served. Every donation can save up to three lives and will be used locally. To register for the blood drive, visit or contact Deb Morrison at 292-3011.
