Essential Gear for the Rainy Season

The wet season in the Philippines is here, bringing heavy rains, potential flooding, and unexpected power outages. Being prepared can make a huge difference in keeping you and your family safe and comfortable. Here are some must-have emergency products to help you get ready for the rain! 

Stay Powered Up 

When the power goes out, the ACE rechargeable flashlight and extra batteries are lifesavers. They help you see in the dark and keep your home bright when the lights go out. 

Health and Safety First 

A well-stocked first aid kit is essential. It should include bandages, antiseptics, pain relievers, and any prescription medications. This kit will help you handle minor injuries or ailments that might occur during the rainy season. 

Keep Your Home Dry 

Heavy rains can cause leaks. Use Bostik Super Vulcaseal to seal leaks in roofs, gutters, and windows. This will help keep your home dry and prevent water damage. 

Safe Driving 

Driving in the rain can be tough. Turtle Wax Rain Away helps keep your windshield and windows clear by preventing water spots. It works on windshields, exterior windows, fog lights, and headlights, making your rainy drives safer. 

Stay Dry Outdoors 

If you need to go outside, the Hercules Deluxe Rainsuit  with hood visor and wristband will keep you dry from head to toe. Pair it with Camel Rainboots to keep your feet dry and comfortable. This gear will protect you from the rain, whether you’re commuting or running errands. 

Keep the Bugs Away 

Rain often brings insects indoors. Baygon Shield Defense Multi-Insect Killer is effective against cockroaches, mosquitoes, flies, and other pests. Keep your home bug-free with this powerful spray. 

Stay Informed 

The Firefly Powerful LED Torch Lamp with AM/FM Radio keeps you updated with weather reports and government advisories. A battery-operated or hand-crank model ensures you get information even when the power is out. 

Protect Your Valuables 

Store important documents and electronics in waterproof bags and containers. This keeps them safe from water damage during heavy rains or flooding. 

Charge Up 

Portable power banks are essential for keeping your devices charged. Make sure they are fully charged so you can stay connected during power outages. 

Food and Water Supply 

Stock up on non-perishable food and clean drinking water. Aim for at least a three-day supply for each family member. Canned goods, dried fruits, nuts, and bottled water are good choices. 

Flood Safety 

For areas prone to severe flooding, life jackets and inflatable rafts are crucial. They provide safety and a means of transportation in extreme conditions.
