Summary:
The team takes on two challenging builds in this episode, both intended to lighten the load that firefighters must carry into action. The first is dubbed the "pyro pack", a custom backpack designed to carry tools normally lugged in by hand, including a dry-chem fire extinguisher, an oxygen tank, batteries, wire lights, some electronics, and more. The second is a specialized robot designed to climb stairs carrying up to 500 pounds of the kind of gear usually carried by at least three firefighters.

Only available in the US.
