Humans can last more than a month without food, but only 3 days without water. That is why your emergency water supply is so important to your family’s survival and hence your emergency preparedness supply list. As we point out throughout this guide, the typical human needs 2.5 to 3.0 liters (0.66 to 0.79 gallons) of water every day as a minimum. That does not include sanitation, cooking and other requirements, which drives the single person emergency water supply up to 84 liters or 21 gallons of water per person per week.
Take into account several family members and you can see how crucial it is to have a large supply of water on hand for a long-term situation. You will also want to keep a store of emergency water purification tablets and products as well as water filters and filtration products on hand. We recommend only the highest rated and recommended products available, complete with the survival review information we conduct ourselves.
