  • Hurricane Preparedness

    01 Nov 2005

    It didn’t take long for the “blame game” to reach critical mass after Hurricane Wilma tore through South Florida. Emergency water and ice distribution centers ran out of supplies, even though the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) had delivered more than 300 truckloads of water, ice and meals three days before Wilma came ashore, according to the Miami Herald. Failure to maintain adequate supplies of food and water in a disaster can cause inconvenient situations, or worse, threaten your survival.

  • Emergency Water

    27 Oct 2005

    America’s top disaster preparedness agencies have consistently offered the following advice: Maintain the equivalent of 3 gallons of water for every family member in your home. This covers drinking and sanitation needs over the critical 72-hour period when you may be on your own (1 gallon per person, per day), as rescuers tend to those most in need of assistance. After seeing footage of a ravaged New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina, should we keep more than the recommended amount of safe drinking water on hand to increase our chances of survival?

  • Emergency Food

    15 Aug 2005

    Every family should have a 3-day emergency supply of water and food in their disaster pantry. Assume you’ll be without electricity, gas and the ability to cook. For portability and ease, make sure your disaster kit contains enough food for every family member. You can purchase extra emergency food packs and energy bars(with a 5-year shelf life), as needs dictate. If you’re at work, in your car or on the go, make sure you’ve made similar preparations.
