From consciousness to resilience, this National Disaster Resilience Month (formerly called National Disaster Consciousness Month) aims to strengthen the resilience of Filipinos to natural calamities through adequate knowledge and preparedness. Here are some reminders you should take note in these unexpected times (these might save your life!):



Emergency Survival Kit

Make sure your emergency survival kit is stocked with essential items and kept in an easily accessible location. Make sure you know how to use what’s inside.
