Battle of the Badges

NewsChannel 10

Amarillo, TX - Captain of the Amarillo Fire Department, Steve Barrera, joined The Early Show to talk about the 3rd Annual "Battle of the Badges" competition in Amarillo.

The Amarillo Fire Department has defeated the Amarillo Police Department the last two years and hopes to continue their winning streak.

APD or the "badges" won the competition at Coffee Memorial Blood Center, so the pressure is on for the "boots" to win this event.

Capt. Barerra is hoping people will come out and support their favorite emergency response team Saturday, August 21, 2010 at the Amarillo Civic Center.

Tickets range from $15-$35 and benefit The 100 Club of Amarillo, which immediately responds to the financial aid of families of officers who are seriously injured or killed in the line of duty.

Doors open at 6pm and the competition begins at 7pm. There are more than 10 bouts scheduled for Saturday's event.

Tickets are available at and at all Panhandle ticket locations.
