Emergency Awareness

My hearts breaks when I see all the news about the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan a few days ago. My brother in Canada called last night when he learned that Philippines is on Level 2 alert for the tsunami warning. He was worried for we are near to the sea. I told him that the tsunami warning is not here in Davao City. Janjan, my 9 year old son was jokingly, or I guess he really meant it when he said that, in case there is a tsunami here, we could use our rubber boat, so we need to prepare the rubber boat all the time. Well, our school from kindergarten to college has been trying to educate the kids whenever major emergency will come. They have fire and earthquake drills every year. Anyhow, in times of emergency, is your family prepared for it? Do you discuss it with your kids?
