An important part of storm and hurricane preparations is to store water and food.

Here are some tips.

  • Store enough water to last two weeks for each person in your household. A normal active person requires a minimum of one litre of water per day for drinking and food preparation.
  • Label the containers with the current date and renew your drinking supply each month.
  • Store emergency food in waterproof containers.
  • Arrange items so that those stored first will be used first.
  • Observe expiration dates on packaged foods.
  • Wrap bread, cookies, crackers, and dry goods in plastic bags and store in airtight containers.
  • Your storage area should be dry, cool and free from contamination by insects,poisons and other chemicals.
  • Water should be stored in clean, well-covered containers.
