Taken from FEMA E-Brief - January 29, 2015
FEMA has introduced an exciting web-based program called “Do 1 Thing,” designed to prepare your family for emergencies throughout the year. February theme is: “Water.”
Water is an essential element to survival and a necessary item in an emergency supply kit. During the month of February, take action to store three days worth of water for your household.
“Do 1 Thing” offers the following list of ways to achieve this goal:
· Purchase and store a 72-hour supply of commercially bottled water;
· Bottle a 72-hour supply of water at home; or
· Learn how to provide a safe supply of drinking water for your household in a disaster.
By completing one of these actions, you’ll be better prepared for the unexpected. Also, you will be participating in America’s PrepareAthon!, a national campaign to prepare for hazards specific to your community through drills, group discussions, and exercises. Register your action on the campaign’s website. Be counted among the two million preparedness actions already taken by families, businesses, and organizations across the country leading up to National PrepareAthon! Day on April 30, 2015.
