It's National Preparedness Month

posted on

National Preparedness Month is a time to concentrate on preparing yourself and your family in case of a disaster or emergency. Ready.gov is a great resource for individuals and families who are looking for more information on how to prepare for those situations.

DrinkTap.org has a lot of information available on water emergencies and how to prepare for them on its Water Emergencies webpage. For example, here is information on water that should be stored for emergencies:

  • Don't use discarded plastic milk containers for water storage because bacteria could grow in them.
  • Make sure containers are airtight.
  • Store them in a cool location, and change them every few months to keep the water fresh.

Happy National Preparedness Month!
