Do you remember a little while back when I shared my family’s adventures in water outage? As our city infrastructure ages, water main breaks or maintenance shutoffs seem to happen more and more often. It’s always good to have a few cases of bottled water and some sanitation supplies handy, but in serious situations the outage may outlast your stash.
Here’s a video explaining some of the more serious situations that can cause water outages, why the lack of water can be a serious threat to your family, and what you can do about it. Even if a terrorist or weather emergency doesn’t take out the water supply infrastructure in your area, it’s a good idea to know what to do in case you experience a major water main break. Look below the video for a clickable link so you can download the Red Cross booklet and notes from the video.
What steps have you taken to be prepared in case the water suddenly stops flowing from your taps?
