Pre-emptive life-saving on Shabbat


On Shabbat, one who is not currently in danger, but who can reasonably expect he will be in danger later on Shabbat, may not act now to prevent that danger. The exception to this is where one might not actually be able to save himself once he is in the dangerous situation.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 3:69)

Have a great day,
