Preparing for the Worst: How to Guard Against Natural Calamities

January 17, 2020

Filipinos have close-knit family ties and are known for being affectionate. We love spending time with family, especially on Sundays, where we eat lunch, attend mass or watch a movie together. We also look forward to long weekends and holidays to plan for a vacation. What makes us unique from that of other nations is our attitude or optimism on the way we handle situations. Just like with the recent eruption of Taal volcano, the whole world has witnessed how everyone made out of their way to send help and donations to our kababayans in Batangas and Cavite. 

No one knows when a calamity or an accident will happen. Ask yourself, “what if something happens to me? How would my family cope with the situation and continue to live the life I promised them?”. Whether you are single or married, with or without kids it is always important to be prepared for the worst. Make sure that those people, who are financially dependent on you, are protected from any life’s struggles and uncertainties. Do something about it and set your goals in that direction.

1. Be up to date.
A disaster may strike anytime. Watching or reading the news on social media is the fastest way to get information for calamity updates.

2. Make a list of the emergency numbers. 
Ask each of your family members to save the emergency numbers in their mobile phones.

3. Build a kit.
A basic emergency kit includes battery-powered radio, medicines, first aid kit, bottled water, flashlights, whistle and ready to eat food in your emergency kit. Put them in an easy-to-carry bag or a sturdy backpack. Make sure that everyone in your household knows where it is.

4. Stay fit and healthy. 
Physical exercise sharpens your mind and makes your brain work better. Thus, in any emergency situation, you remain focused and have the ability to act fast and precise, making your family feel safer and secured.

5. Have life insurance.
It is in our nature to protect, especially, our loved ones from any hurt or trouble. Life insurance will help your family to start anew and continue to live with peace and comfort.
