Back when I used to teach the lifeguard Academy, the obviously taught the candidates how to make rescues, how to read the water to be safe, and different ways to get people out of trouble. One of the most important skills that we had to express to the candidates was the idea of protecting yourself first. For example, lets say you are making a peer rescue or a rock rescue, and you pull the victim from the piling or the rock and you are making your way in with them. Then all of a sudden you find yourself being pushed back into the rocks or the pilings by the swell. The choice now is do I go into the rocks first or does the victim. Many of the candidates would say that we should go into the rocks first so that we can protect the victim from being further injured. But the answer is that the victim goes into the rocks first. The rescuer needs to be able to use the victim as a protective shield so that they are able to make it back to the shore safely with the victim. This isn’t a comment that the normal community person would be very happy about. But when it comes to scene management we already have one victim that needs rescued. If the rescuer now becomes a victim then we need to increase the number of people we are putting into a dangerous situation to get them out. This same idea should apply to your everyday life. Even though we have family, kids, siblings, friends etc., there needs to be an element of self rescue first. We have to look out for a self and protect herself and take care of ourselves so that we are able to do the things we need to do for our loved ones and the people around us. If we are hurt, tired, depressed, etc. that we are able to do what we need to do for ourselves or those that we love. So take a page from the old lifeguard manual and protect yourself the first then you will be able to be the rescuer for everyone around you as well as yourself :-)
