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.
