VIDEO: Amassing more than 116,000 followers and more than two million likes, the Sacramento Fire Department TikTok gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the everyday life of a firefighter.
They share videos of themselves cooking, rescuing puppies, and safety tips. Some of their videos have more than 400,000 views. Wendy Aguilar, a spokesperson for the Sacramento Fire Department, said the goal was to inform the public, but they're seeing another benefit as well.
"It's working. We have young users who are reaching out and saying, 'When I grow up, I want to be a firefighter,'" said Aguilar.
This video of the Sacramento Fire Department Station 17 cooking up some al pastor street tacos has more than 266,000 views. Capt. Frederick Goerend cooked up some tortas when ABC10 visited to meet the people behind the videos.
