February - Water - Be Prepared for Disasters and Emergencies

Being prepared for disasters and emergencies can seem like a big job. Not knowing where to start prevents us from starting at all…do1thing is a 12 month program that makes it easy for you to prepare yourself, your family and community for emergencies or disasters. Join SOCIL monthly as we do1thing to prepare:

February The Goal: Have enough water on-hand for your family to last 3 days (72 hours). This should be about 3 gallons per person.

Choose one of the following things to do this month to become better prepared:

  • Purchase and store a 72-hour supply of commercially bottled water (or more - up to two weeks).
  • Bottle a 72-hour supply of water at home.
  • Learn how to provide a safe supply of drinking water fro your household in a disaster.
