Emergency Drinking Water Safety


Drinking water is the most important supplies during and after a disaster, and it is most often also the most difficult item to come by. This section is designed to discuss water availability and water safety.

Remember, long term you need 1 gallon of water per person per day and people with special medical conditions might need even more than that.
At least half of that is needed for sanitary purposes, and half for consumption through drinking and food preparation.
