Day 15: Water Wednesday

We cannot talk about emergency preparedness without discussing the importance of potable (drinking) water storage. In an emergency your regular water source may be cut-off or contaminated. Prepare yourself by building a supply of water that will meet your family’s needs during an emergency. The rule of thumb is to store one gallon of water per person per day. This is the minimum for drinking and some cooking needs. It does not include what would be needed for pets or for sanitation.

DAY 15 Challenge:1-3, or 5 pts    Share a photo or video of the water you have stored for emergency use and how many people in your household. Could be as simple as some extra bottled water in the pantry, don’t worry if you don’t don’t have your full supply ready to go yet.

Level Up: 5 pts We are bringing back one of our more conversational challenges for today’s level up. Tell us how you would be able to purify water from a non-sterile source. Let us know if you have all of the materials needed at your home to purify water (via your explained method). Share a photo or video.
