It is no coincidence that today’s challenge falls on the 14th. That number has a special meaning especially if you live in the Pacific North West. Across the country, you will see varying days recommended of preparedness items from 3, 7, 10, to even 14… Yup here in the PNW, because of our risk of earthquakes, you will see local preparedness experts pushing 2 weeks ready. Experts recommend 1 Gallon of Water Per Person Per Day. No matter if you are thinking 3 days, 7 days or even 14 days, that seems overwhelming when you start multiplying by the number of members in your household including pets!! Today’s challenge we will look at storing water and hopefully see some creative solutions to keeping water stored for emergencies and disasters.
DAY 14 Challenge: 1 pt For today’s challenge, we want to see your water! Share a short video clip reviewing where and how you store water. Be sure to review any creative solutions you have come up with to help store water. Be sure to give us an idea how many folks in your household you are storing for!
Level Up: 15 pts For today’s Level Up, we want you to think of some alternative water sources you may have access to around your home. Give us a tour of these sources and any special items you may need to be able to access them.
