FOOD AND WA­TER

201 Health - - Disaster Preparation -

FEMA sug­gests hav­ing an emer­gency sup­ply of one gal­lon of wa­ter, per per­son, per day. In your emer­gency sup­ply, keep a bot­tle of un­scented bleach, which can be used to pu­rify wa­ter by adding 1/8 of a tea­spoon of bleach to one gal­lon of wa­ter.

Have at least three days’ worth of food in stor­age and re­mem­ber to buy food that can be pre­pared with­out heat or power. And while canned beans seem like a rea­son­able op­tion, your finicky 5-year-old might be un­likely to eat them. Plan on stock­pil­ing food your fam­ily will ac­tu­ally eat.
