The Tahlequah Fire Department took delivery of a hefty amount of Ragú pasta sauce on Tuesday, Jan. 11.
Tahlequah firefighters on Red shift were at Station 1 as the FedEx driver pulled up and unloaded 792 jars of the sauce. That shift caught the attention of the national company after crew members posted a video of them cooking while on duty, using Ragú sauce.
“The definition of Tahlequah is ‘Two is enough,’ and evidentially Ragú didn’t think two was enough; they thought 792 would be,” said Assistant Fire Chief Mark Whittmore.
Ragú’s recent on-air ads have shown people using its sauces and saying, “Cook like a mother!” Firefighter Anthony Margarit boasted in the video that he is, in fact, cooking like a mother.
