Bottled water plays a vital role in the lead up to and recovery from disasters and other emergencies.This new video helps remind people to take a moment to re-assess their risks and update hurricane kits and emergency plans. Being prepared in advance of a threat means stocking up on emergency supplies such as non-perishable food, drinking water, batteries, etc., in sufficient quantities to last at least 72 hours. In fact FEMA advises that the safest, most reliable emergency drinking water is commercially purchased bottled water and recommends at least one gallon per person per day, for at least three days. When tap water is disrupted by anything from a power outage to a pipe breach during a hurricane, bottled water provides a necessary and reliable source of safe drinking water. Storing bottled water is a safe, convenient, way to ensure that you have an adequate supply of water on hand. Bottled water is there when you need it, but only because the industry is strong and viable throughout the year. More information can be found at www.bottledwater.org. Information on the different types of severe weather such as tornadoes, severe thunderstorms and flooding is available at www.weather.gov and www.ready.gov/hurricanes or the Spanish-language web site www.listo.gov.
