Why have an emergency water supply?
Here in the United States, we normally enjoy an abundant domestic water supply which we often take for granted. Disruptions to our water supplies and its safety have occurred from earthquakes, tornadoes, droughts, floods, power outages, nuclear power accidents, disease outbreaks, and winter storms. These interruptions have lasted a few days and even up to several weeks…therefore, a safe drinking water plan is essential to your family’s well being.
