WATCHOUT is an acronym used to remind fire fighters of potential dangers to their safety and to give advice on safe work.

WEATHER dominates fire behaviour, so keep informed.

ACTIONS must be based on current and expected fire behaviour.

TRY out at least two safe escape routes.

COMMUNICATE with your FPO, your crew and adjoining crews.

Funeka uxoxisane neFPO yakho nabo bonke abalekelelayo emlilweni.

HAZARDS — beware of variations in fuels and steep slopes.

OBSERVE changes in wind speed and direction, temperature, humidity and cloud.

UNDERSTAND your instructions, make sure that you are understood.

THINK clearly, be alert and act decisively before your situation becomes critical.

Cabangisisa kahle uphinde uthathe isinqumo esihlakaniphile phambi kokuthi kubhede kakhulu.
