Water During A Disaster

The amount of water needed during a disaster continues to be confused.  There are a variety of important facts that everybody should know about water.

FEMA Suggests the Following:

  • One gallon of water per person per day, for drinking and sanitation.
  • Children, nursing mothers, and sick people may need more water.
  • If you live in a warm weather climate more water may be necessary.
  • Store water tightly in clean plastic containers such as soft drink bottles.
  • Keep at least a three-day supply of water per person.
