Be ready now is a weekly post about things you can do right now to get ready for whatever might come next courtesy of Dennis L Hitzeman’s Readiness Weblog.

This week’s theme: Water

  • Immediate: Buy one 2.5 gallon water jug at your local grocer for every person dependent on your immediate readiness plan.
  • Intermediate: Locate a site to store 110 gallons (two 55 gallon drums) of potable water. Buy the drums and a means to extract the water. Buy long-term water preservative. Fill the drums.
  • Long-term: Do you have access to a well? Do you know someone who does? How to they get their water out of their well? As them if they would be willing to work with you to come up with a plan to get water out of the well in the case of a long-term power failure.
