Who should build and/or start a fire?

Answer The person with the most experience and skill at it provided he/she is not already involved in something more vitally important at the time.

Fire may be an extremely vital and important part of your survival. Kindling, matches, lighter fluid, and good wood can all be used up unnecessarily by an inexperienced fire maker. This is not the time for learning. If someone is panicking get them to gather firewood but leave the fire starting to those who will not fail at it.
