In the episode, volunteer Captain Tina Gustafson demonstrates how water is hooked up and regulated through the truck, and how math and science expertise is necessary when calculating variables such as water pressure and gravity.

The team also shows how it uses thermal imaging cameras to locate hot spots and trapped victims and demonstrate how firefighters suit up into full gear in under one minute.

Oscar-winning actress Geena Davis is executive producer of “Mission Unstoppable,” and host Miranda Cosgrove hosts. The series is part of CBS's Educational/Informational "It's Epic" Saturday morning programming block. It is produced by Litton Entertainment and Lyda Hill Philanthropies' If/Then Initiative.
