Emergency Tip: February's Prep Task - Water

Do1Thing.Com's Goal for February: Prepare sources of drinking water for your family if an emergency occurs.

Below is a list of things the Do1Thing team recommends you can do to achieve your goal this month.
Choose at least one, and complete it!

Visit this month’s Do 1 Thing topic page
 for fact sheets, videos and additional resources on ensuring your family gets the correct emergency information.

The LifeStraw Family 1.0 Water Purifier is one example of
a water filter that can take almost any source of fresh water
and make it drinkable.
Portable Water Filters: Another method for families during an emergency is to filter water from sources such as lakes, ponds and streams using a camping water filter (see Amazon for examples). These filters come in all forms: personal straws, hand-held pumps, and family-size models. Most filter systems will produce hundreds of gallons of drinkable water before needing to be serviced.
