VIDEO: Kevin Cunrod is a Susquehanna Valley EMT. He is a Manheim firefighter. And in his off time, between calls, he's a TikTok star. "There are a lot of first responders out there who are down and they're stressed," said Cunrod. "If I can help them to not be stressed or my partners not to be stressed, I'll keep doing it." Cunrod's positive videos have amassed more than 22,000 followers in just a matter of months on his TikTok page. He didn't even begin using TikTok until after the state shutdown in March. "After the COVID crisis when everybody got locked down my wife was laughing one day and was like, hey I'm watching TikTok," he said. "I started watching it after that and I was like, I'm going to try this. So, at 49-years-old I tried TikTok for the first time and fell in love with it."
