Don’t Forget Fresh Water

It’s more than simply the intensity of natural disasters that makes them so perilous – they often strike without warning. Even when people hear news of an impending hurricane or other example of nature’s fury, there’s seldom time to adequately prepare before evacuating the area. By planning for an emergency situation well in advance, you can help ensure your family’s ultimate safety.

Although people have been known to live for long stretches of time without food, they perish quickly without water. Water is the building block of life, and it becomes more important than you could ever imagine during times of emergency. Water storage barrels therefore represent one of the most fundamental parts of a disaster survival kit. The number of storage barrels necessary will depend on your discretion – do you want to be prepared for a week, a month or more? In any case, you’ll need plenty of fresh water to survive a disastrous ordeal.  If you have availability to lots of water maybe all you will need will be a water filtering system or a simple water bottle filter and/or just buy some boxed water.
