Experienced firefighters, who have a solid understanding of fire behavior and the ability to recognize and monitor other environmental hazards, are often selected to perform as a lookout on the fireline. They choose a good vantage point (one that has a good overview of the entire area where firefighters are located) and they watch for changes in the fire environment that might affect their crew (and other resources nearby). They keep in constant communication with other firefighters, notifying them of trigger points, changes in weather patterns, increases in fire behavior, and more. Because being a lookout is so important for the safety of the crew, only the most trusted and communicative firefighters are given this responsibility.
