Water Collection, Purification & Storage

Water Collection, Purification & Storage on Prepare4Tomorrow Water is earth's most valuable resource. It is the essential element to survival. All living things need it to survive. But in the near future, there may not be enough to sustain life on our planet.

Storing and knowing how to gather and decontaminate water is necessary in every emergency plan and emergency supplies kit.

It is said that the average person can survive only three (3) days without water. Following a disaster, clean drinking water may not be available. Regular water sources could be cut-off or compromised through contamination. If evacuating, water sources will take on many undesireable and contaminated forms. Building a supply of water is only the beginning of preparing for an emergency. After the initial supply is gone, knowing how to collect and decontaminate subsequent supplies is crucial. The search for potable (drinkable) water sources should always be a major priority.
