Makati City has distributed N95 respiratory masks to students even before the Taal volcano eruption.

With Taal Volcano’s ashfall having reached the metropolis, there is now a high demand of respiratory masks in Metro Manila, causing a spike in its price at drug stores.

Many Makati City students have posted on social media that they are wearing N95 respiratory masks included in emergency ‘go bags’ earlier distributed to students by the local government.

According to the city government, it was the initiative of Mayor Abigail Binay to provide students with emergency kits.

The mayor said in an earlier statement that young Makati residents should always be prepared to meet any crisis. “We want our youth to learn the importance of self-help and preparedness. Through this project, we are able to inculcate a culture of preparedness among young Makatizens.”

Binay said helping students adopt disaster readiness as a mindset and way of life will make them much less vulnerable to the impact of any untoward incident.

“Resilience must be inclusive and should be pursued through the collective effort of all our stakeholders. We hope that providing our students with individually-packed go bags will motivate their parents to prepare their own go bags for the entire household.”

The local government said the emergency kits support survival for 72 hours after a disaster. Each bag contains essential needs such as food and drinking water, hygiene kit, first aid kit, flashlight, and other handy materials.
