Battle of the Badges

(St. Paul, MN) - Memorial Blood Centers (MBC) has announced a winner of its 2018 Battle of the Badges competition: Rogers Police and Fire Department.

The friendly competition, held annually in August, challenges first responders in the Twin Cities to help save the most lives through blood donation. In 2018, participants from 20 citywide departments recruited 405 community members to donate blood at participating blood drives.

77 people in the Rogers community donated during the 2018 Battle of the Badges event, all of whom may be saving the life of someone in need.

2019 is another year to participate in this life-saving event. Stay tuned for more information about the August 2019 competition!

 

Mock Car Crash at Rogers High School

On Thursday, May 30, a mock car crash was held at the Rogers High School. Participants included members of the Rogers Police Department, Fire Department, North Ambulance and Aircare, Hennepin County Medical Examiners Office and students from the Rogers High School.

The vehicles used were dontated by Burda’s Towing. This was the 4th consecutive year the event was held at the school. Newly licensed, 10th grade students watch a video produced by the student actors in the high school auditorium.

After watching the video, students are escorted to the north side of the school where the crash scene is located. The crash is narrated by a member of the PD. As students arrive outside they see the first squad arriving. The crash scene progresses with additional squads, Fire, North Ambulance and eventually the Medical Examiners Office due to a fatality. Some of the officers, and actors have portable mics and their reactions are heard by the students. The driver who caused the fatal crash is arrested. A critically injured passenger is transported from the scene by a North Aircare helicopter (the student actor gets a short ride over the city and is returned back to the school). The parent of the deceased person arrives that the scene and is consoled by officers when he learns of the death of his child.

Unfortunately the emergency personnel have a lot of experience responding to real life scenes like this, and do an excellent job recreating it for the students.

Shop With A Cop

The Rogers Police Department and Rogers Target Store partner over the Holidays for “Shop with a Cop”. Students are hand selected for participation, with the help of the schools, in consideration of the positive impact the experience may have in a variety of individual situations.

We’d like to extend our appreciation to those who helped make this such a successful, impactful event!

Target again hosted and contributed. Police and Target Associates teamed up with students, helping them select gifts for the holidays.
The kids then came to the police department for pizza and gift wrapping.

Lions Club again has donated $3,000 to this event and Burda's Towing donated another $500.00. Cabelas donated and hosted along with baseline pricing, Cub Foods provided meals for Christmas and Dimago's provided all the pizzas.

The Rogers community is fortunate to have these generous contributors, making this Christmas a positive experience for so many children!
