Are you prepared for a drinking water emergency?

Don't be caught with your scrubs around your ankles and no emergency water.
With Flint, Michigan fresh in our minds, do you have an adequate supply of water stored for an emergency? It's an easy thing to forget about...until the unexpected happens.
If you live in the Pacific Northwest, you should know that we are overdue for an earthquake. If you live anywhere else, you should know how easy it is to have your water supply compromised.
Here's what you need to know:
You need one gallon of water, per day, per person in your house.
You should have at least 7 days of water stored in your home.
That means if there are two people in your house, you need 6 of those 2.5 gallon jugs of water.
Add a gallon per day for your PETS.

BOTTOM LINE: Every time you go to the store buy a 2.5 gallon jug of water. At the very least buy a gallon of water.
