Lifesaving device: Always keep a whistle in your pocket – Gordon
A whistle may be your best chance for survival in any emergency.
Senator Richard Gordon has encouraged the public to always bring a lifesaving whistle in case of a disaster or life-threading situation. He said whistles should be kept inside one’s pocket in preparation for any emergency.
“While we cannot stop a disaster from happening, we can prepare for it. Staying prepared reduces the impact of an emergency. Always remember to keep a whistle inside your pocket,” he wrote on Facebook.
Gordon also shared an advisory from the Philippine Red Cross on “why a whistle can save your life.” The senator currently serves Red Cross chairman in the country.
“When a disaster occurs, phones may not be working. A whistle can be your signal for help,” the advisory read.
“A whistle can alert people to any potential danger,” it said.
