The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and the American Red Cross have prepared a comprehensive pamphlet that instructs people how to make water safe to drink during an emergency. Cardboard containers also leak easily and are not designed for long-term storage of liquids. In Hurricane Katrina, more than 1,000 drinking water systems and 172 sewage treatment plants were damaged, leaving 2.4 million people without access to safe drinking water.

If the water you are using comes from a well or water source that is not treated with chlorine, add two drops of non-scented liquid household chlorine bleach to the water. Even if you don’t live in earthquake county, find out the condition of your cities pipes and what they plan on doing in the event of water contamination.
