Every month, KROCK will be honoring a local Fire Department for their dedication to Central New York by inducting them in to our “Hall of Flame.” Not only does this give us an opportunity to show our gratitude to the brave men & women of our local fire departments, but it gives those departments access to the massive reach of KROCK to promote anything they like!
