How Prepared Are You? Life Pack Emergency Essentials

When In Manila, there are scenarios that just stay at the back of our head that scare us.  Imagine a normal day at the office, you’re on one of the top floors when suddenly you feel the ground shaking and the buildings around you are collapsing, people around you are panicking and you’re scared out of your pants, what do you do?  Or you’re driving home when suddenly its rains, traffic builds up, and you notice a flood fastly forming around, what do you do?

Just two scenarios, but a big possibility that can happen not just in Manila but anywhere.  Look at the recent citywide emergency drill that happened.  The west valley fault has left us checking online how far away our home address or office is from it.

That flooding scenario may even be already common to us, notice that when it rains for a little bit longer in Manila, we get worried easier because of the stories of Ondoy and Glenda typhoons that have scarred us.  Signs of the times show that getting a car insurance with an “acts of God” clause is already a necessity.

Why are we lured so much to watching disaster / apocalyptic movies like San Andreas Fault, Deep Impact, The Day After Tomorrow, World War Z? Because we have these secret anxieties locked up in our headwant to live-out these possible scenarios but still see a “happy ending”.  Its entertainment, but in a way, it also comforts us.

We can also just pray that it doesn’t happen to us.  But you will never know when disaster can strike.  The best thing we can do is to face each day prepared.

The government holds simulation exercises to equip people during an emergency. Fire drills, earthquake drills, first aid treatment and the likes, are all being practiced to promote life-saving responses and survival.  But emergency preparedness doesn’t end there. Part of the preparation is being equipped with “emergency essentials”—the supplies you need when you have to evacuate or when you need to stay home for longer time with no electricity.

So, are you and  your family equipped for the next emergency?
