How to Sign Up

How to Support the Coralville Police & Fire Departments

Each successful donor will get to "vote" for one department. The department will the most donor votes wins (along with bragging rights and the traveling trophy).  This is the seventh annual event. The Police Department has beaten the Fire Department four out of the six battles,
but Fire currently house the trophy from last year’s win.

It is important to be well hydrated and it is recommended to increase the amount of salt in your diet the day prior to donating.

Sponsored by the Coralville Police Department, Coralville Fire Department, and DeGowin Blood Center.
