Ready Nutrition - Hidden Water Sources in the Home
Water is the most important preparedness item for your body’s survival and one of the first items to disappear [1] following an emergency. Dehydration can become dangerous during excessive heat spells, following a period of prolonged sweating, or even during winter [2] months; and is one of the leading causes of medical issues [3] that tend to arise after a disaster.

While there are short [4] and longer-term [5] ways to store water, there may come a time when your stored water runs out and you must look elsewhere.

When water is unavailable, we must tap into other sources for emergency use. According to FEMA, there are sources in the home that you can access for emergency water.

Learning ways to get to these water sources would be a proactive approach to accessing hidden water. If there is any doubt that the water you are about to consume may be compromised, it’s better to be on the safe side and treat it through one of the three water treatment methods [6]: chemically, through distillation or through a boiling method.

Water is one of the most important items to have stored. We use water for everything: hydrating our bodies, cleaning our bodies, brushing our teeth, for cooking, cleaning the dishes, and cleaning wounds. Ensure that you have enough for these purposes.
