FT. MILL, S.C. -   Wilson found himself in the middle of a battle today.  But, it was a fun battle with a good cause.  After attempting to wake up everybody in Baxter Village in Ft. Mill, Wilson enjoyed amping up the competition between first responders. And the smack talk was on! 

The 2nd Annual Battle of the Badges is a friendly competition between Police, Fire and EMS to help the Community Blood Center of the Carolinas to get blood donors.  York County Sheriff's department won the competition last year, but the heat is on this year for Piedmont Medical Center EMS who came in 2nd.  Donate blood for your team.

There is always a greater need for blood in the summer months.  So come out and be part of the Battle of the Badges and donate blood.  Over the next 3 days donors can donate at either Piedmont Medical Center today from 1p-7pm, Wednesday from 7am until 1pm and on Thursday at the York County Sheriff's Office Moss Justice Center from 8am until 2pm.  Go to the weblinks below to find out more about locations and times.
