Some may say that no amount of training would prepare one when disaster strikes, still it’s better than being caught unprepared. They decided to include families of their employees in the training because in Yolanda and in other past disasters, it was shown that many of those who should be manning the public service posts were absent because they had to attend to their families.
The Philippine Red Cross has assembled a Lifeline Kit , a portable kit or bag that contains the items one would require to survive for the first 72 hours when evacuating from a disaster. The Philippines, due to its location along the Ring of Fire, or typhoon belt, is prone to natural disasters like typhoons, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions. As advised by Red Cross, it is also important to prepare a kit for each member of your family who is able to carry one. When packing food, water and medicine in the into the kits, it is advised to keep track of the expiration date. Water should be replaced every 6 months. Bug out is defined as leaving one’s home and going to another location when disaster strikes. A “bug out bag” or BOB is an extensive survival kit and you can grab and go in case of a disaster.

If you live in an area where there is a chance of an earthquake or hurricanes then you should have an earthquake or hurricane survival kit. A survival kit is any container of supplies that help you survive any emergency situation you may be in.
A winter survival kit is a survival kit that is usually kept in your car in the event you get stranded in the winter.
Romulo Foundation, Zuellig Family Foundation, and the Manila Observatory at the Manila Polo Club, said aside from training their employees how to cope in case of disaster, they are also helping them train their families.
These should be thoroughly studied and understood before the actual disaster but must be kept for reference. Older children can prepare their own kits so as the exercise will train them to make disaster preparedness a way of life.
The reason for a bug out is your home or life is threatened by a natural or manmade disaster.
The purpose of a get home bag is to help you survive an emergency or disaster just until you can get home and get to your other survival supplies.

As in when disaster strikes, the economy collapses, a nuclear bomb goes off, terrorists strike or any other large scale natural or man made disaster. It can be fairly simple kit you take with you when you go camping that would provide shelter and fire in the event you get lost. In the event of an emergency or disaster you would have enough food to last you several weeks to several months without having to go to the grocery store. A more comprehensive kit would include supplies to keep you or a group going for several days or weeks. If a disaster strikes while you are at work, a get home bag can provide you with the essentials you may need for a few hours. In the event of an emergency or disaster you can grab this and take off without wasting valuable time searching for and packing items you might need.
