All personnel should be responsible for establishing and maintaining situational awareness at wildfire incidents. All personnel should ensure they remain vigilant, continually evaluate their surroundings and communicate any hazards through the appropriate levels within the incident command system.

Information communicated by lookouts can help to significantly enhance situational awareness of all personnel at the incident ground.

Refer to control measure 'Establish and maintain situational awareness' for further information.
