Supplemental Disaster Supply Considerations List

( To be used in conjunction with another Disaster Supply Kit Checklist )           

Water -- (Various quantities have been suggested from different organizations. The most congruent suggestion is at least 3 gallons per person for 7 - 10 days) But it is also important HOW you store it on hand. For drinking, you may want to consider convenience bottled water. Because if you have only big jugs of water, when water supply is low if you spill some, - it matters. With bottled water, you already have a serving of water measured, there is less chance to spill it, and if you do, it wont cause as much damage to your water supply as dropping a big jug of water would.
