An article by News.au’s Ben O’Brien: Firefighting in South East Asia has a history of being a tricky business.
The first thing you have to do is find out if you’re in the right place.
There’s no one to talk to, so you have no clue what the fire is, what the conditions are.
That’s why it’s always best to be in the vicinity of a fire to find out whether the situation is favourable for your equipment.
You have to have a fire, and you’ve got to find the fire.
If you’re out in the open, you’re going to get burned.
The second thing is you’ve gotta know where the fire starts.
The fire is not going to come from the side of a building, but it’s going to go through a house, so find that first.
Then you’ve probably got to figure out if it’s in a house or not.
The last thing you want to do when you get out in a blaze is get caught in it.
Firefighters have to be very, very, careful and very,very, very good at what they do.
It’s very, VERY, dangerous.
Firefighting is a very dangerous job.
