The Three-Day Deadline

What is “the three-day deadline”?

You can survive 3 minutes without air, 3 hours without shelter in extreme weather, 3 weeks without food, but only 3 days without Water.

Today we are used to having running, drinkable water and even though many prefer to buy bottled water, very few know how to collect it or purify it in a crisis. Most of our earthquakes in New Zealand has affected the water supply in some format.

We immediately run to the stores to buy supply. That supply will last from 3 hours to three days depending on the level of panic. Look around the world at how many other crises are currently happening and the desperation those crisis cause.

WATER is your lifeline. Food can be obtained from many different sources but water is so limiting in its source. So, today take out the cheapest and best life-sustaining insurance policy you can………. Buy, Store, Purify some water. Here is a link to see how much water, JUST FOR DRINKING, that you need per day. You will need extra for cooking, hygiene and laundry. Minimum for drinking is one gallon of water per day per person.

If there are dependable people in your family such as children, elderly or infirm then you will need to calculate their additional needs too. Do you know how to purify seawater? Can you filter dirty water from a stream? This could be an exercise to research and go through with your kids. Get them involved and make “preparation” a fun weekend exercise….it may one day save their lives. In the meantime, store some water in a cool dark space. If this was a movie called “Your Last Three Days”, (and, it had Arnie in it), you would be paying to see it!!

In the meantime, please see our products list for water purifiers and storage tanks. See our freebie downloads for tips on survival. Stay safe lovely community and happy prepping….
