Did you know? Preparing for an emergency begins in the home. An emergency preparedness kit should enable you to be self-sufficient for a minimum of three days. Your emergency water supply should consist of at least four litres (one gallon) of water per person, per day.

Also, don’t forget about pets and people with unique needs when stocking your emergency water and remember with emergency management once is rarely enough, check your water supply every six months and replenish or renew as needed.
