You voted all month long, now we officially have a winner for Rockford's #1 Firefighter.

In some parts of the country, September is Firefighter Appreciation Month, plus it happens to be the month where we at 97ZOK are gearing up for the Pink Party and 97ZOK Bra Auction featuring local firefighters so it is the perfect month to find out all about your favorite local firefighter.

While this contest is called, 'Rockford's #1,' we do extend the nominations and voting to the entire 97ZOK listening area, so your favorite firefighter does not need to be with the Rockford Fire Department.

But it just so happens, he is.

Congratulations to Rockford's #1 Firefighter, JR Cantu!

After a final round with over 28,000 votes, JR took the top spot with 27% of the vote.

One of his biggest supporters was his daughter, Maddy.
