Safety Information

Children growing up in this tech savvy age practically knows anything what’s in and about in the internet. Initially these kids are given access to connect to websites from which their curiousity jumps to a higher level in wanting to know more. For older kids or the young adults this kind of situation is expected from them, however parents are concerned with the little ones as young as five years old. We literally allowed them to connect, play endlessly with gadgets that we parents need to apply strict parental control over excessive usage and unverified websites that are not safe for kids.

The government’s Firearms and Explosives Office (FEO) is yet to deliver an Internet-based streamline processing of application for both licensing and permit acquisition.

Streamlining the application process for the License To Own and Possess Firearms (LTOPF) and Permit To Carry Firearms Outside Residence (PTCFOR) to deal with some of the protest of gun owners that license requirements are “redundant and excessive.”

How and What to Prepare on your Basic Emergency Kits and Disaster Supplies


Safety Information
Parenting

Philippines is almost weather-proof and calamity-tested when it comes to disasters such as typhoons, floods, earthquakes and even human conflicts (rebellion, religious wars, etc.) The question is are we always prepared to face these natural distubances? Does your family keep a handy emergency kit available every time a scheduled disaster warning arises? Do you get paranoid hearing “disaster preparedness”? Are you still waiting for the next calamity/disaster to come ahead before preparing your basic and essential needs? Global warming changes environment’s natural cycle and we don’t know when an earthquake will move earth and how intense its dance and sway, we don’t know which tsunami waves will swipe which beach bays, or we don’t know how damaging a typhoon until its rapid flood brought damage to our community.

Deiville is sharing a list recommended by the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
Basic Emergency Kits and Disaster Supplies could include the following recommended items:
