Or anything about new gadget and appliance release, or the newest trend in home décor.
Inside the bag contains this small pouch called Safe Kit 36, a compact 36-hour emergency pack that contains many things that you’ll need during emergencies and disaster.
So many things inside this little pouch and be amazed on its contents. I was personally surprised how amazingly they have thought about all of the contents inside, and it all make sense.
1). A transparent sealable plastic bag – you can store anything inside, especially those that are so important for easy identification.
2). A black garbage bag. This makes sense because even during the disaster, you should not litter anything, and it’s not an excuse, duh.
3). Spoon and fork (foldable) – this looks so cool because it is very handy and easily can be store even in your pocket.
4). Portable mechanical flashlight – nobody wants to be blind at night.
5). Matchsticks – can be use especially if you wants to create a fire for cooking. You can wrap it inside the sealable plastic to avoid it making it wet.
6). Whistle – this can be used to let the rescuer knows your location, especially when you got lost and your phone is battery-drained.
7). Candies – WHY? Actually I kept on thinking why there are candies inside? Are these some treats? However, I’ve found out that when you are in a disaster and no food (or your stomach can’t feel you need food), candies / sugar will help us to sustain hunger, while we are waiting for our rescuers.
8). Insect repellent – Nobody wants to be cause some malaria or dengue during disaster (especially during flash flood and typhoons).
9). Mask – You need this to keep on inhaling any agents, and also for sanitation.
And for your accidental wounds, you’ll need the following items for sanitation:
10). Prep pads.
11). Gauze pads.
12). Alcohol swabs.
13). Baby wipes
14) Medical tape
15). Sterile Plaster
And for your basic vanity, you’ll need the following:
17). Tooth brush
18). Small size soap. Seriously, you don’t need the huge bar.
19). Toothpaste in sachet form. You don’t need those huge tube!
Why am sharing this post.
Because I think we should always be ready for any disaster that it will come.
Earthquake, Typhoon, Flash Flood, or Fire - we should have our own Survival / Emergency Kit at home.
They even had a demonstration on how to properly use the fire extinguisher. I find it so cool!
A local fisherman (from my Momma’s hometown) have discovered this giant fish floating itself going to the shore. At first they thought it’s another dolphin from afar. They can’t tell what kind of giant fish is this, but some local fisherman says this kind of fish can only be found deeply down the ocean.
I used to live near the sea and since childhood I’ve been so observant with the nature. I mean, every now and then we used to see giant fishes or any weird ocean creatures floating ashore, and the local old fisherman says it a bad sign from the nature.
This fish might be living deeply in the ocean, and because of frequent shaking, their natural habitats are being disturbed resulting to looking for a new places hoping to survive.
I felt bad for this giant marine creature. I don’t know what kind of creature it is (it looks like it has a giant fin!). The fisherman says it looks like this creature is asking for help, unfortunately it won’t survive that long due to its physical damage.
I am wishing that hopefully there is an initiative wherein local people especially the fishermen’s to undergo training on what they should do when this things happen in their places. Because these creatures are also part of the nature we live in.
My Mom says this creature was brought in the local barangay office, and didn’t know what happens next.
She just only wished that local fisherman would not butchered this marine creature, and become a feast on their table.
Sad but true….
Have you encountered this kind of giant marine creature? Do you have you own survival kit at home?
