To be better prepared, read on to learn how to prepare an emergency kit for your condo unit. 

Step One: Invest In A Lightweight Yet Durable Bag

First of all, you will need to find a bag that is lightweight and large enough to contain all of your necessities. Try to find one that is weatherproof to keep the supplies inside protected. As much as possible, try to prepare one emergency kit for each member of your family. 

The first and most important items that you should pack are your basic supplies.

Step Two: Prepare Basic Supplies

During severe emergencies, you may not have a steady supply of water and food around you. You may also need to go to an evacuation center, which has limited supplies at hand. Make sure you prepare these basic supplies to keep you ready:

●    Clean Drinking Water
●    Food Rations (canned/non-perishable food)
●    First Aid Kit

After packing your basic needs, think about the special needs of each of your family members. 

Step Three: Consider Special Needs

Does anyone in your family have any special conditions? Do they have asthma, diabetes, or another type of illness that needs special medication? Take note of these and pack some extra supplies in your emergency kit. You never know when it will be safe to go back up to your condo unit.

The next items that you should pack into your bag are precautionary supplies.

Step Four: Prepare Precautionary Supplies

It’s better to be safe than sorry. Precautionary supplies are not something that you need to survive in your daily life, but can help in emergency situations. These are some of the supplies that you should have along with you:

●    Flashlight
●    Copies of important documents (photocopies of IDs, birth certificates, passports)
●    A change of clothes
●    Cash in a ziplock bag

And finally, make sure that you always have a means of communication in your bag.

Step Five: Have A Means of Communication

Many things can happen during an emergency situation. Power may be cut off, restricting you from getting any cellular reception. Try having more than one communication device in your emergency kit just in case. 

Here are other supplies important for communication:
●    Radio
●    Chargers and Extra Batteries
●    Whistle

These are just some of the steps that you can do to make your own emergency kit. Make sure that you constantly update and charge items in your emergency kit in order to be ready for any sudden emergency.

Key Takeaway
Before you purchase a condo for sale in Iloilo, take a look at their emergency exits. Note where their staircase is, as the elevators will not be operational during an emergency. 

In case of any emergencies, the first thing you should do is remain calm. 

Gather up your emergency kit and other essentials and make your way down. With a reliable property such as Futura by Filinvest’s One Spatial Iloilo, you will be able to make your way to safety as quickly as possible.
