A quarter of the earth's surface is covered with grass, and the world's
plains are home to massive herds of animals. This episode traverses the
grasslands of Mongolia and the flooding plains of Papau New Guinea, and
finds great gatherings of creatures, such as East Africa's wildebeest and
clusters of rare grazers like Mongolian gazelles.
LSSU's dedicated three-story fire lab made all the difference to Brian Applegate.
"Our certification training classes offered real situations," Brian says. Students practice victim search techniques while controlling and extinguishing fires. Applegate says his favorite exercise was the live fire flashover simulation. "We saw how fires evolved as they burned," he says. "It’s as close as you can get to the real thing."
