The contest pits the fire department against the police department for donors and runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Red Cross Classrooms at 620 East Main Street, Endicott.

Blood donors can chose between the E.F.D. or E.P.D. when they roll up their sleeves to give the winning department coveted social media bragging rights.

Organizers say each blood donation has a potential to save up to three lives.
