Access to safe water is the most important provision to have on hand in times of emergency. You simply can't live without it! FEMA recommends having access to 1 gallon of water per person per day for a period of two weeks. That's 14 gallons per person. Emergency Water can be obtained by buying it outright or retrieving it from existing water sources such as your water heater. Contaminated water can be made safe with water purification tablets or a water purifier. Emergencykits.com offers solutions to meet a wide range of needs.
