The Philippines’ geographic position makes it prone to natural disasters such as typhoons, floods, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, and landslides.
These natural hazards can unexpectedly happen any time. That’s why it’s important to have an emergency plan and supplies ready should these disasters strike.
It’s never too early to talk with your family about your emergency plans. Your preparedness can go a long way, and no one would want to find themselves off-guard amid an uncertain situation.
So, it’s wise to keep your home ready and equipped. Now more than ever, it’s time to assemble your home emergency kit, and I’ve rounded up some basic must-have emergency items.
Disaster can affect electricity and cause power outages and blackouts. Ensuring that your home is equipped with a heavy-duty emergency light would be advantageous.
