Having access to clean water in an emergency is critical and almost always overlooked until it is too late. Here are a few obvious points to understand about water:
• Without water you die very quickly
Depending on your health and age, you will live for 5-7 days without clean water. You can live much longer without food.
• Water is heavy and takes up a lot of space
A gallon of water weighs about 8.3 pounds. Water is not easy to transport because it is so heavy. That means your emergency water plan should account for that.
