Earlier this year, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) announced that Metro Manila is due for an earthquake anytime soon. Based on historical data, the West Valley Fault traversing the metro moves every 400 to 600 years, with last movement dating back to 1658 or 357 years ago. According to the Phivolcs chief, an earthquake could happen even before the fault line hit its 400-year mark. In other words, anytime.
There is no technology that could precisely predict when the next Big One will happen. Also, living more than five meters from the fault line doesn’t mean you are safe. Therefore, it is important to prepare for emergency situations. Even if you know the drill and no matter how many times you practice it, you still need to ensure you and your family’s survival, at least during the first 48 to 72 hours after the quake.
This is how Life Pack could help.
