There is quite a bit of talk surrounding emergency food supplies and storage but what about water preparedness?
Food is very important, we all know that. Who likes to even go a half day without food? Not me!
Water is even more important though. It’s hard to go an hour without water and the thought of possibly not having any is really hard to fathom.
What about natural and man-made disasters though? What about disruptions in our city’s water supply? What about contamination? What about all the junk in our water today?
Water Preparedness During Emergencies
No matter where you live there is the possibility of emergencies cropping up out of nowhere. I happen to live in the south where it seems every month except November and December there is some sort of tornado warning because of crazy weather.
How would I provide water for my family if we lost our house? What if the whole neighborhood get’s flattened?
Am I really going to enjoy standing in a line for a few bottled waters? Absolutely not!
Maybe you live in an area with earthquakes, hurricanes or snowy regions. Are you prepared?
I have thought about the possibilities of having to deal with water contamination and even the thoughts of having to get my water from a stream, lake or river.
I’ve recently been thinking about emergency water storage. I’m really not liking the idea of filling dozens of two liter bottles with water. Where would I put them?
Water Preparedness – My Solutions
This has been a really tough subject for me only because it’s as if I don’t want to face reality. I’m living each day as if the water from my faucet will always be flowing and I’ll be able to filter it properly.
I’m sure many people thought their money was safe and then the year 2001 came around and poof! In the years since many, many people have lost almost everything.
They weren’t prepared. I don’t want to be them do you?
My second solution is acquiring some sort of emergency water barrel I can keep in the garage. It holds a lot of water and can sit in the corner with no problems.
I’m not sitting here claiming to know everything about emergency preparedness water but I do have natural instincts. What about you?
Please leave a comment at the end of this post because I want to know your thoughts on water preparedness.
