How Long Do You Have to Save a Life?

This is a question that likely every lifeguard—and many a parent—has asked at one time or another.

The answer is as simple as it is unsettling: To save the life of a drowning person, a lifeguard has about as much time as it takes to cook a soft-boiled egg, or roughly three minutes.

Drowning, as lifeguards know, takes place in a rapid and unspectacular series of stages. There is no screaming for help, or frantic waving. That’s why there are documented cases of children drowning within reach of a parent, and of friends watching—unaware—as another friend drowns. The untrained person expects drowning to look like it does on TV or in the movies: a dramatic, violent struggle to survive. But that’s a distressed swimmer, not a drowning one, although distressed swimmers are at risk of drowning.

How to Create a First Aid Kit for Your Home


Sometimes in life we have little  emergencies, you or someone you know may get cut, burned or many other injuries. Many injuries are not life threatening and don’t need immediate medical attention. However, knowing how to treat a small cut can make a difference in an emergency. Consider taking a first aid class, but having the following things can help you stop bleeding and prevent infection.

Here are some personal recommendations that I keep at home at all times.
