Are you flood ready?



Time and again, preparedness has been regarded as one of the most important values a person can have. Being prepared and being ready has been the central principle of countless organizations, from scouting groups, public services, to heads of states. It is plain and simple a good value to hold.

Dry season is about to end. Are you weather-ready?



Scattered rains and thunderstorms brought floods to parts of Metro Manila and across the country the past weeks – an indication of the dry season’s end and the onset of the rainy season.
