SWEETWATER COUNTY — It’s time to bleed for another cause. This time, it’s all about bragging rights. Which emergency services agency are you going to support?

This year will be the 8th Annual Sweetwater County Battle of the Badges Blood Drive. According to a joint letter to local businesses from Vitalant Blood Services and Sweetwater County Emergency Responders, “this blood drive will pit nearly all Sweetwater County Emergency Responder agencies against each other to see who can get the most votes and take the win.”

During a two-day event, the blood drives will be open to the public. The Rock Springs blood drive will take place Tuesday, June 14, from noon to 6 pm at the Bunning Freight Station, while the Green River drive will take place at the Green River Recreation Center on Wednesday, June 15, from noon to 6 pm.
