Since yesterday, about 200 lifeguards had been present around along the Danish coasts in order to take care of us danes when we move in the water. However, like with most other professions, has livredderne also got other working conditions, in coronatiden.
the Extra Leaf has talked with Anders Myrhøj, which is kystlivredningschef in TrygFondens Sta. He explains the different working conditions livredderne now must work under.
- One of the things we've had to eliminate is 'mouth to mouth' situation out in the water. Here the focus will instead be to have the person taken as quickly as possible to the shore, where it really genoplivningssituation going on.
- it is important to say that it is very, very rare that we've been in situations where we give the injection in the water. There are also other factors that come into play in relation to just that. There are both waves, currents and general conditions in the water. Often the best decision to come as soon as possible to the shore.

in Addition to mouth-to-mouth indblæsningen out in the water is eliminated, you will also be greeted by a lifeguard in the suit, if it comes to a genoplivningssituation.
- As a lifeguard, we are working in the companionship. Here it would be the one mate, that draws the person in, while the other makes ready for revival. It will now take place in the overall and the injection will take place through a mask and with gloves. It with the mask and gloves is, however, something we always do.
If there are minor injuries such as stings, small scrapes or another, it will in future be more help to self-help out at the Danish coasts.
- it Is small things, we will in the higher degree guide above to treat. It can be, for example, at the small wounds under the feet or the fire fighter's damage. We have, of course, still all of the funds for the treatment.
- Although we over the summer will be a step back, one should, however, never be afraid to approach themselves. We will always be ready to help no matter what.
And just like livredderne will be just as helpful as they usually do, it is also important for Anders Myrhøj to stress that it has not been much harder to be a life saver in relation to corona-the situation.
- I think that we are 'cheap' dropped in relation to the changes we have had to make in our work. Where there are changes, is in the 'worst case situations', and it is fortunately very rarely, we experience them.
- in Fact I would say that we are 99.5 percent as strong as we were before corona.

On-shore wind, there is increased risk of revlehuller with strong outflow.4. Learn the beach to know
A new beach can be full of surprises that cannot be seen with the naked eye. Ask the locals or a lifeguard about the beach's particular circumstances before you go in the water. Pass there is a fast ferry that can give the big waves? Is the beach known to be very steep, so that quickly becomes deep? Are there jetties or groynes, which affects the flow?
