The US Coast Guard recommends at least 8 oz. of drinking water per day in a short term emergency survival situation. The Water Kit has 40 oz. of emergency drinking water (5 days) PLUS two ways to secure more water, a water straw and water purification tablets.
- 10 Datrex water pouches, 4 oz. each
- Aquamira Frontier Straw water filter
- Aquamira Water Purifier Tablets, 20-pack
Remember, this is a WALK AWAY short-term emergency situation. If we are living off of our 5 Day Prep Packs (aka 72-hour kit), we are definitely in an emergency situation. You will want to store larger amounts of portable water if we need to evacuate and can DRIVE AWAY (5 gallons per person) and even more water for your STAY IN HOME storage (14 gallons per person). As water will be one of our most important resources, you won’t want to be without this kit.
