Emergency Preparedness

Conserve Water

In the event of an earthquake, keep a three-day water supply, just in case.

  • Each family member (including pets) needs one gallon per day
  • Store tap water in food-grade plastic containers; replace every six months
  • Store bottled water in the original sealed containers; replace every six months.

Treat Your Water

If your supply runs out, you can treat your tap water:

  1. Boil it for three minutes, or disinfect it by adding regular household bleach
  2. Add eight drops of bleach for every gallon of water
  3. Shake or stir then let it stand for thirty minutes.
