New Year Preparation Resolution # 1: Water

We can only survive three days without water.

If you track this next series of blog posts on Preparation Resolutions, by the end of this month, you will have prepared your home and family to a good base level. Getting this information together has helped me prepare my own home and family, so this isn’t just theory– it’s reality.

Water is the most important emergency and survival item. It’s one of the first things to sell out if people are afraid of severe weather. The key is to be prepared. This is one of the simplest items to have ready in your home. A simply rule: a minimum of one case of water per person. I recommend two, but at least one. Just get it. Put it somewhere. A case will last a person three days.

The slideshow below gives information about water, what you need, and ways to purify.

Get the water now! Be Prepared.
