Local police officers and firefighters face off in the Public Safety Guns 'n' Hoses hockey game at the RBC Center on Friday, March 26 at 7:30 p.m. The game is the seaon's first RBC meeting between law-enforcing Blue Liners and the firefighting Leather Heads. They met earlier this season at the Rec Zone in Raleigh, where the Leather Heads clenched a 3-2 victory. Both teams play in the Lower-C division of Conference USA hockey at the Rec Zone.

The Blue Liners hail from the Raleigh Police Department and other local police departments. The Leather Heads represent Raleigh, Durham, Durham Highway, Fuquay-Varina, Garner, Knightdale, and Morrisvile fire departments. Both the game and east-lot parking are free to the public. Concessions will  be available during the game. Doors at the east entrance open at 7:00 p.m.

Was this game not a charity event in the past? Any reason why it is not one this year?

Tonight, there’s a conflict of interest for most of us… The Longbranch is hosting a concert to benefit the family of the late Flip Kissinger… so most of us will be going to the game, and then getting a mountain of speeding tickets going over to the Branch.

Drive safely, everyone.

There wasn’t enough time to set up a charity event, this was a last minute thing with the RBC. We are hopeing to have something put together in the very near future.
