Sillimanians Speak: “How do you prepare yourself for upcoming disasters?”

“I think it is really important that you stay alert when disasters happen. One way of doing that is by updating yourself with current news.” – Andrea Dawn Boycillo, Bachelor of Mass Communication II

“I prepare myself for the upcoming disasters by always having a stock of food and a first aid kit because there are times that disasters happen without us having a hint that it will come, like earthquakes, for example. Listening to the news and keeping yourself updated are also very helpful if we’re talking about typhoons and other predictable disasters because in that way, we can be guided on what we should and shouldn’t do.” – Almae June Dael, BBA – ECONOMICS III

“I buy large plastic bags where I will store some of my stuff and lots of easy-to-open tuna paella. I will also purchase lots of water and… a Sony Xperia z2.” – Joshua Ababa, Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology III

“I personally prepare by stocking canned goods and charging cell phones ahead of time. I also listen to the radio or check the internet about storms or other disasters.” – Franco S. Regalado, Bachelor of Science in Entrepreneurship II
