Bug-Out Bag Essentials List
"Better safe than sorry!"

When we speak of natural disasters, it’s always good to remember that Malaysia is quite fortunate in that we are not situated within the pacific Ring of Fire – a path along which the region is characterized by active volcanoes and frequent earthquakes. To pick a close example, our neighbour Indonesia is at a much higher risk of experiencing natural disasters like volcanic eruptions and high-scale earthquakes that may result in catastrophic tsunamis such as the one that happened in Aceh in 2004.

Flash Floods & East Coast Monsoon in Malaysia

In our country, natural disasters or emergencies often take the form of flash floods in high density cities in Peninsular Malaysia, as well as flooding as a result of the rising tides from the seasonal East Coast Monsoon. These natural events often hit areas in our East Coast and regularly take place between November to March.

1 Home, 1 Emergency Bug-Out Bag

Preparation for facing any disaster ought to be done for each individual or family, as recommended by the Malaysian government through agencies involved in disaster management. The Malaysian Meteorological Department (MET Malaysia) has recently released an infographic and a reminder about the need to prepare an Emergency Bag or Bug-Out Bag (BOB) for every home in the event of an emergency situation. This bag functions as an emergency bag that can be immediately carried on your person and accessed directly as and when an emergency occurs, thus saving a lot of time in time-sensitive situations.
