I’m sure you’ve heard this before, so let me just remind you, that humans can only survive for just 3 days without water. That’s not long at all. 3 days without water, and you may be kicking the can. Water is nothing to joke about or risk not having any. Here’s a quick few water safety and storage tips.
FEMA recommends at least one half-gallon of drinking water each day per person. People in hot environments, children, nursing mothers and sick people need even more.
Now that you have all that water, where do you put it? The safest way to store it is in an FDA-approved food grade container that is extremely durable. Additionally, a lid that can be closed tightly is a must.
If you don’t have access to clean water, water purifiers tabs should also be kept around to help clean dirty water. Or, a Lifestraw can be purchased that allows you to safety drink directly out of any water source.
Now that you know the tips, make sure you’ve got the proper amount of water for you and your entire family. Make sure you know how to store it and that your water is safe for drinking and hygiene needs!
