Keep Safe With These Emergency Contact Numbers

November 22, 2022

Share on:

We are reminded by Bagyong Paeng that we must always be ready for the consequences of a storm no matter how unalarming it may seem in the news or warned by the Philippine government. During a typhoon, or any other calamity or unwanted occurrence for that matter, it is always better to be overprepared than underprepared. But, aside from packing up emergency bags, and stocking up on unperishable food, whether we live in a high-up subdivision in Cavite wherein we think flood waters would never come near us, we always need to have an opening of a helping hand just in case if our situations become too dire to bear.


Below are some emergency contact and emergency hotlines you need to take as early as now:

If there is one agency that is in charge when it comes to natural disasters, how to deal with them, and how to help citizens cope with them it is this government branch.
