Description : Part 1: If there is a road that runs anywhere near your department, whether it's a rural farm-to-market or a major highway, you run the risk of facing a big rig accident. This show kicks off our three-part Big Rig Rescue Series. In this episode, you'll learn the ins-and-outs of various big rigs with a look at them before they're wrecked and mangled. Part 2: If you're in the fire service anywhere in the country, there's a good chance at some point you'll work a big rig rescue. This is the second show in our three-part series. In this segment, we'll go over the nuts and bolts of extrication. There are some similarities to standard vehicle rescue, but there are some major differences, too. And with this show, you'll be ready to rescue. Part 3: Did you know the trailer on a big rig is almost a separate vehicle of its own? That's important to remember if you're called to a big rig rescue in your town. In our final show in the Big Rig Rescue Series, we'll cover what few other trainers do. We'll walk you through some of the key facts about a trailer, including controlling the brake system and shutting off the trailer's separate engine.

Description : How far would you go to save a dog's life? The extraordinary story of one man who has driven more than 1 million miles to rescue thousands of dogs from hunger, abuse and neglect and give them a second chance at life and love. For years, Greg Mahle struggled to keep the last of his family-run restaurants afloat in Ohio. When it finally closed, he was broke and unsure what to do next. Then a stranded van-load of puppies changed his life forever. Join journalist Peter Zheutlin as he travels with Greg from Ohio to the Gulf Coast on his Rescue Road Trips to bring hard-luck dogs from the deep South to loving "forever families" up north, with the help of many selfless volunteers along the way. From Houston's impoverished Fifth Ward--where thousands of strays roam the streets--and high-kill shelters in Louisiana, to joyous scenes of adopters embracing their new pups in the Northeast, Rescue Road is full of heart: an inspiring story about the unique bond between dogs and humans, and how going the extra mile can make a life-changing difference for these loyal canines-and for us all.
