(The Philippine Star) - August 29, 2015 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - The recent metro wide Shake Drill conducted by the MMDA highlighted not only the possible hazards of living in the West Valley Fault vicinity, but also the importance of being prepared for a 7.2 earthquake.

Ever the Helpful Place, Ace Hardware will help keep you prepared with its portable, compact and versatile emergency essentials from which you can create your own survival kit.

The breakdown of power lines and sources during earthquakes can lead to outages so stay alert and be ready all the time with emergency lights and portable generators that can light up your place. There are also multifunction LED flashlights with radios to keep you abreast of the latest news and emergency updates. You can also get a power jump that can be used as a battery charger for all your mobile devices, a jump starter for your car, and a LED flashlight to light your way in the dark.

Earthquakes may also cause fire so it’s best to store a fire extinguisher in your home for your family’s safety. Durable hard hats, emergency flashers, ropes, multi-tools, disaster kits and safety vests can also be lifesavers during an emergency situation. Just in case you may have to relocate, there are also folding mattresses for safe and comfortable sleep in the outdoors.

Prepare in the aftermath of earthquake and make your own survival kit with Ace Hardware’s waterproof bags that float safely if dropped in water. There are also watertight protector cases that provide durable lifetime protection for your valuables.

You can find these survival items available at selected branches of Ace Hardware, Ace Express and Ace Builders stores nationwide. Visit www.acehardware.ph  or like Ace Hardware  at www.facebook.com/acehardwarephilippines.
