Actually no - the proper order is "reach, throw, row, go". The reason is that reaching with a pole or an arm or throwing a rescue device is a lot safer than actually going out to rescue the person. When going out with "row", you risk being capsized by the panicking person trying to get in the boat - you actually just want them to hang onto the boat until you get to shore or until they've calmed down enough to listen to instructions. A line rescue (which is going out and around the person with a rope while swimming) is even more dangerous, and a personal rescue (grabbing them while swimming is really dangerous.

One of the key parts of being a lifeguard is minimizing the risk to both you and the victim - something like a personal rescue might result in a stronger victim drowning the guard if they don't know the proper rescue grabs/breaks or are unwilling to punch the victim in the dick to get them to keel over. While it might seem counter-intuative, it's made with good sense.

I'd rather toss someone a vest and a dingy first.

Life boats are fucking difficult to get out of the water, but you can lift a guy in a dingy with ease as long as they are willing to help themselves and hold on.

If they can't get in a dingy, I might toss the boat down and climb down the ladder to try to save them and get them into the boat.

If that doesn't work, you send down the guy on the line to fish him out of the water.

Oh look, the poor bastard doesn't want saved... Toss him an anvil and get him outta my sight.

If its french already it would probably do nothing (task its given is complete already). Noone would programm a machine to translate everything that is not french into french and french things into a certain other language (or even worse random language). What i could imagine is that it translates french into whatever you ask it to (on french). In that case 2 machines would work as long as you ask it to translate into a certain language.
