The first thing we have to do is establish the etymological origin of the term salvage that now concerns us. In doing so we will discover that it emanates from Latin and more exactly from the verb I will save, which in turn comes from salvus. This word can be translated as "healthy or whole."
Rescue is the action and effect of saving or saving (safeguard, rid of a risk or danger, insure). The concept can refer to a body rescue or spiritual .
The rescue of body , also know as lifeguard , refers to the physical help provided to someone in an emergency situation to allow their survival. This rescue can be provided spontaneously by one or more people , or in an organized manner by a professional service (firemen, paramedics, civil protection, etc.).
Precisely along this line we have to underline the existence of what is known as marine rescue, which is the whole set of actions that are carried out with the clear objective of ensuring the safety of all vessels and the people who at that time They are found in the waters of a certain place.
Thus, for example, in the case of Spain there is the Maritime Rescue and Security Society, which is responsible for undertaking the aforementioned work. So much so that it has as its main functions the carrying out of the rescue and search tasks, the control of what is the maritime traffic or the fight against what is the pollution of the coasts and the seas.
To carry out these tasks, which it has entrusted with, it has a large fleet of vehicles, among which maritime units, such as tugboats or fast intervention vessels, as well as air units should be highlighted.
On the other hand, there is also what is called aquatic rescue, which is what lifeguards do on the beaches. Specifically, this type of rescue is divided into three specific areas: water rescue, water safety and preventive rescue.
The physical rescue usually requires the intervention of various equipment or materials, such as ropes, stairs, boats, stretchers, mats or hoses, as the case may be. Critical situations require great effort and courage on the part of those who execute the rescue. That is why it is common for the rescue to involve the intervention of some hero , as in the case of the bailouts that occurred after the terrorist attacks of the September 11, 2001 in the city of New York (U.S ).
He spiritual rescue , meanwhile, refers to the salvation of soul . Whoever accedes to spiritual salvation makes his soul free from eternal damnation, which includes torture and punishment after death and for all eternity.
The concept of eternal rescue it depends on each religion . For Catholicism, the rescue of the spirit implies reaching the heaven to spend eternity with God , something that is achieved when the person manages to get rid of the sins . Otherwise, the subject ends up confined to the hell .
