Why water preparation is needed for global pandemics or natural disasters!

Water Preparation


Water is one of the most important elements for survival. It is essential for keeping your body hydrated, regulating your body temperature, and performing many other bodily functions. In order to make sure you are prepared for any situation that may require you to survive in the wilderness, it is important to understand how to find and collect water in the wild.


There are so many normal situations where you could be without water.


Think if you got a little lost hiking and daylight was fading, and you still hadn’t reached the peak. You were out hiking and realized you were really lost, then were forced to spend a few nights in the wilderness. Fortunately, you had brought a few supplies with you and were able to make it through the ordeal. But it wasn’t easy being stranded in the middle of nowhere. 


There are so many instances when you can find yourself without water. 


Hopefully in this situation you had water!

Think of what would happen if a major storm was to be coming your way.



 Would you have enough water prepared ahead of time?



Most people think “oh I do not need to worry! I can just go to the store and get some before it runs out”. The reality is water runs out the fastest when people start to realize they are unprepared.

Water is life and without it things get very dangerous for yourself or your family.


Water Scarcity Leads To Mayhem


Imagine waking up one day to find that your city’s water supply has been compromised. The result? Well, let’s just say it doesn’t take long for the shelves at any store where you live clear out – leaving residents without access even if they’re lucky enough still have power! 


You might think that when the rest of your neighborhood shops start running low on water, you can just go to any nearby grocery store and grab a few bottles. However, everyone else in town may already be doing this too!


The shelves will quickly clear before long leaving even those with supplies scraping by until something new comes along–and there isn’t always enough warning about what’s coming next: hurricanes or pandemics often leave cities With major needs unmet for weeks at time.

This is a common situation that happens all the time


A hurricane or something unexpected happens and people panic. Then everyone starts to hoard water and the basic elements of surivial. What this leads to is that people are unable to find any in their location and then have to hope to buy a case from an outside vendor or go without drinking fluids.


Think of all the big sales after Christmas.


You have people pushing and shoving to get a sweet deal on something. The same kind of atmosphere happens but to another extreme when water is what is being chased.


This can happen to everyday people and should not ever be the case in a dreadful situation. If you have the foresight to prepare you would never find yourself in this situation.


Bottle Water Goes First


The truth is that in an emergency situation bottle water runs out quiet fast. This happens all the time! If you are prepared then this would not occur in a situation like this.


Or you’ll find yourself in a long line trying to get some water and hope they do not run out.

How much water does the average person need a day?


According to the mayo clinic men need 3.7 liters of water and women need 2.7 liters. That’s a lot of water!

Think of a normal situation that’s what you may need. Then add on top of this that your electricity may shut off and you need more water. The list goes on and on as to why even these estimates will be more in a scenario even for non-preppers.


Water Usage


Think of all the things you use water for on a daily basis beyond drinking it. You need it for so many things such as sanitation. Yes, you can sanitize without water but not to the same level.



Do you have any animals?



They will need water to!



Think of everything you use water for!


Then realize the importance of being prepared. When I have been in different hurricanes I was always prepared with water! I never wanted to find myself in a situation where I did not have enough or worst that I could not flush my toilet.


If you live in a city or urban environment where will you go to the restroom? It takes water to flush and a lot of it.


How much water should I have?


I would say at least enough for three weeks always. It is enough time to get more water and you to figure out what to do next. If you are a prepper then you should have more obviously.


If you are a non-prepper and want to have some security in the most important thing to survival then make sure you have a few weeks of water stored.


It will go a long way when you least expect it!


The risk for the average person is part of human nature. If you are thirsty and I mean it really you drink anything. Thats why you have to drink clean water or know how to purify it.


The alternative is not a good one!


If you don’t drink clean water and its contaminated you run the risk of getting sick. If it is not treated properly, the consequences could lead to serious diseases such as dysentery and hepatitis A which would only worsen when combined together due their severe symptoms – diarrhea or nausea respectively.


When there is not a lot of easily accessible clean water your human waste can find its way into your water. This is because sanitation levels decline despite using wipes and other means of sanitation because without water you will not be as clean.


This can lead to the transfer of human waste bacteria into your clean water or your body.


Be prepared so you do not find yourself needing to drink contaminated water. You will not be worried when the power goes out or a hurricane comes you’re way. Water is the most important thing in order to survive.
