    DescriptionUsing entertaining yet informative experiments, Capt. Doug Watson demonstrates how various physical laws of science apply to the fireground operations. In this DVD, Capt. Watson illustrates heat and its effects on smoke and pressure; measures and quantifies the effect of hand placement when forcing a door; and measures the effect of footing a ladder from the front vs. the back. A solid understanding of fireground dynamics gives the firefighter tools to be safe and more efficient.

    Author Information
    A 32-year veteran of the fire service, Doug Watson launched his lifelong dream of becoming a firefighter with the Cos Cob Volunteer Fire Company in Greenwich, Connecticut before joining the U.S. Army in 1976. After three years of service with the 78th Engineer Battalion in Ettlingen, Germany, including a position with the U.S. Army Ski Patrol, Watson was honourably discharged and attended Fire/EMT school in Florida. In 1981, he was called to duty at the Del-Trail Fire Control District #9 (later Palm Beach County Fire Rescue). Through his career, Watson has served as a firefighter, driver operator, and company officer. Since 2004, Watson has been a training officer with the PBCFR Training and Safety Division.
