Long Serving CNY Fire Chief is Gone, But Will Never Be Forgotten
A well deserved recognition to a first responder his community will never forget.
Meet Gary Kraeger
The Oriskany Fire Department is saddened to announce the passing of one of their longest serving members. Chief Gary Kraeger was a proud leader of the fire department for 57 years.
His presence alone in the fire hall inspired everyone around him, setting the tone year after year.
Our sincere condolences are extended to the entire Kraeger family... Rest easy to the one we fondly know as 'THE CHIEF'
Thank you Chief for all your years of service. Your impact will never be forgotten and your community is incredibly grateful for all you've done.
Nominate a First Responder
Do you know a first responder that deserves to be recognized? Tell us about someone who should be honored in Central New York - a firefighter, police officer, EMT, forest ranger, paramedic, DEC officer, military, rescuer, front-line worker, or any other person first on the scene.
Include their name, a picture, and why they should be recognized during 'First Responder Friday." We'll honor one first responder every Friday and as a way to say thank you, we'll give them a Bundt cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes.
