Water Storage Survey

June 04, 2020

In the event of an emergency water is of the utmost importance in any survival kit. This applies whether sheltering in place or evacuating.

The CDC provides a guide for storing emergency water and since water is JOB 1 we are curious as to whether its recommendations are followed and if not what alternate solutions people are following.

Take our water survey here!

Briefly the CDC guide recommends storing 1 gallon of water per person per day for at least 3 and ideally 14 days. Water should be stored in sealable, unbreakable food-grade storage containers in a cool dark place and rotated every six months.
Here is a link to the full CDC recommendations on water storage.
