Emergency Water Part 4: Resources

For the past month or so, the focus has been emergency water, that most vital but often under-appreciated prep.

During this time, I have highlighted various aspects of water preparedness, including storage, acquisition, and purification.  These recent articles, coupled with those that have been posted in the past, bring to you a wealth of knowledge that will enable you to be water-prepped, regardless of where you live and the size of your budget.

And that, in a nutshell, is the point.  The internet is a wonderful place and there is a wealth of knowledge available free for the taking.  Sure, there are some questionable websites posting bad information but overall, you will find a treasure trove of free, credible resources that will help ensure that the water you drink following a disaster or disruptive event is safe.

Today I want to help jump start your quest for free information about emergency water.  These are articles from websites I trust.  These are resources you need to know about in your quest for emergency water.

Other Free Sources of Information

Many public entities publish up-do-date information on emergency water.  Here are a few resources you can count on for good information.

In addition, also check your local city, county, or state websites.  They usually have a wealth of emergency preparedness information specific to your geographical area.  For example, the advice if you live in the deserts of the Southwest will be very different from the advice if you live someplace lush and green.

Please, do your friends and family a favor by sharing this information with them.  Send them an email, post a message on Facebook, or send them a tweet.  This information is 100% free and not a bit controversial.
