I have prepper friends.

well...medyo nahawa ako ng konti. but i like to be more on the practical side of prepping.

i have everyday carry items, a bug out bag and have fitted a few tools and other kind of kit into my SUV. but that's it.

with my friends i go into jungle survival training /  hiking with them.

sa metro manila nga advisable may parang 1-2 day kit ka para sa tag ulan. kasi there is the possibility of being stuck somewhere and being able to go home during a storm is strong.

Pag nagmove na kami sa new house namin, may husband and I plan to prep. Pero not really with years supply of food, meds, etc. Siguro like what you said, practical prepping lang. Maybe food, water, meds enough for a month. Just fill up the pantry with supplies. We know naman the Philippines is very prone to disasters. Like typhoons, baha, earthquakes. It's really a must to prepare for these situations.

wanna-be-prepper here. It would be foolish not to be, especially as Pinas is world's 3rd most disaster-prone country...

Husband ko ganyan so damay na din ako.sa ngayon nagbbuild pa lang kami ng stock pero meron na kami emergency light sticks,lifestraw,thermal blankets,paracord,swimming vest,yung tablets na pang purify ng tubig,weatherproof walkie talkie,crank(?)radio. Next na bibilhin daw is supply ng freeze dried food na nagllast daw ng 10yrs (per batch daw bili) and rubber boat na mukhang malabo kasi super mahal yun.baka air bed na lang muna.this is more on for baha preparation.

i think we also should have a bug out bag or vehicle. we'll never know when we'll need to leave
the house. so i think we should work out where to go in case such scenario happens. and you'd
have to prepare that place.

so kumbaga, if you live in metro manila, and you plant to go to your Aunt in Tanay should something
unfavorable happen, then you've got to help your aunt prep too.

freeze dried foods are okay. yes they do last long. some are into canning and preserving meat.
lifestraws are good. but you'd have to either
stoop down to the water source to drink, or drink from a bottle. Ufilta is another good filter and they
have come up with a model that is built into a water bottle already.

it is also good to camp out as you'll feel how to live with what you have and learn from mistakes.

^ you mean a bug out place? Would be wise to check out if said location isn't disaster-prone as well. For Metro Manila, the biggest really is a Haiti-type of earthquake. This megaquake will split the metro into 3-4 places. It's just a question of when. Having a family contingency plan is a must for such eventuality

depende sa tao. prepping can be more than just being prepared for a disaster.

yes. of course kasama na yun sa pag pili ng bug out place. in fact one should be ready to leave the
bug out place and move
to another one because you'll never know what can happen.

some people live according to the Castle principle. but the thing is, if something happens, say
your castle becomes a warzone, and the green zone is in Laguna, you'll have to leave for
Laguna.

Hi! Newbie here...

This is good thread. Kudos to you folks!

I'm prepped for a flood or storm but not for all kinds of unexpected disaster.

I stock-up mostly on food, got some tools & other essentials. But I consider it incomplete. Thanks to you, I will do something soon to have my own disaster kit.

I'm not able to go full-out because it's going to cost me a fortune. Serious prepping would mean expecting NBC (Nuclear-Biological-Chemical) disasters aside from the natural calamities. Moreso, for a world war z... handguns may not be enough but of course, a little is better than nothing. I believe the best that we can do is to prep our mind for the worst by knowing what to do when disaster strikes.

I wonder why our country stopped the mandatory military training for every able-bodied citizen. In times of war (doomsday can mean war), warriors survive & most of the casualties are civilians. Aside from not having good equipments, there are inadequately trained personnel for military/disaster service (we need more specialists/experts we can activate in times of crisis).

Why don't we start working on something here so we can come up with some sort of a list or kit or perhaps guide (even if it's just basic)?

If you are already into prepping, you might want to take advantage of the advanced strategies, equipments, etc. of the military (mostly from other countries)... Check the MREs (Meals Ready to Eat - shelf life can be up to 5 years depending on the condition of storage), Combat Rations, etc.

Take care.

well, i don't know if prepping is appealing to women in general...

but mostly it appeals to men, and the women involved are most often supportive of their husbands.

if a war happens in the Philippines, it would be very hard to run due to the population size.

i think one should train mostly with what is available in the Philippines. why? when the situation becomes desperate, there will be no such thing as imports. it would be hard to lean on anything foreign or american.

i think it would be better to focus on knowing the flora and fauna of the philippines, and its different medicinal properties, field medicine, tool making, fire making...all the basic stuff.

also the first priority of survival is being fit and healthy.

medyo mahirap yung gas mask etc. you'd have to stock them and the canisters, can be expensive though...kaya prepping talaga entails money.

ROTC was stopped because it was abused, and it was mismanaged. The turning point was when some ROTC officers, including a few real Phil Army officers, decided to kill someone who threatened to expose their dirty business.

sali ako. my hubby and i are preppers. actually sya lang ang paranoid, nakiki-prep na rin ako.

1. we have a go-bag in our condo, near the door (in case we need to evacuate). it contains food, flashlight, etc. -- the usual. kahit maliit yung kitchen namin, we manage to stock up on an extrabag of brown rice, cans of beans, coucous (just add water), shempre canned goods.

2. we also have another go-bag in our car, plus a tent and two sleeping bags, glass breaker, solar lamp, pangluto, etc. again, in case we need to evacuate the city daw sabi ni hubby.

3. our goal now is to learn skills na useful pa rin in case the world as we know it shuts down, money becomes worthless, and our white-collar skills are rendered useless.

grabe si hubby. geek talaga.  ;D pero i see his point naman. i actually have fun prepping and i am proud to say i am a prepper's wife.

back in July 2014 may napanood ako sa Nat Geographic tungkol sa mga preppers...may room talaga sila na akala mo supermarket with the shelves of food, and other goods na sa tingin nila kelangan nila...tapos un house nila, may mga windmills na malilit for wind energy daw at may solar panels din...tapos one of the wives na nainterview said that she's learning target shooting daw para in case nga kelanganin...


un nga lang kelangan din talaga ng funds sa pagpeprepare for disasters...pero we better start small kahit un pang 3 days lang na supplies in case may typhoon...

After watching world war z, I got worried nga din and wanted to prepare kaya lang dami nang nasisira na food namin that we get in large quantities.  Pinaka preparation namin is we have inter island boat, hoping dun kami sasakay if nagkagulo.

I don't really know how to prepare for doomsday.  I just worry for my kid if ever there's an earthquake and she's in school.

I always tell ask her what she will do if there is. 
Answer: Get the lunch bag and run to the teacher or go out of the building.

In her lunch bag, there's water, food, and whistle.
When she's big enough, I'll also put a phone there that she has to turn on only when there's an emergency.

I don't prepare for doomsday. We will all die anyway, why prolong it?
