Salem Fire Department had two players volunteer their time to be a part of the 16th Annual Battle of the Badges. The Battle of the Badges consists of teams of from police, fire and healthcare communities, in a competitive hockey game at the SNHU area to benefit Dartmouth Children’s Health. Firefighter/Paramedic Dylan Ferguson and Mechanic Leo LeBlanc showed their skating skills on the ice with the rest of the Firefighters.

Even though Team Fire did not win against Team Police—together they raised over $208,000 to support CHaD. This was a fun event for the players and the over 4,000 fans who attended. Congratulations, Dylan and Leo!

According to their website, “Battle of the Badges Hockey proceeds are used to help kids with critical services such as support when they are in pediatric intensive care and management of chronic illnesses, as well as patient and family support services.” Read more about the program here.
