DON'T FORGET WATER

We recommend keeping enough water on hand to enable each member of your household to have 1-2 gallons of water per person, per day for drinking and cleaning. Keep at least a week's worth of water on hand. You can purchase water in bulk at your local grocery or home supply store, or through a water delivery service. Keep your emergency water in an accessible place in your house or garage.
