Let's keep this simple...
MOST IMPORTANT... DON'T PANIC.
Start with an extra weeks worth of food... water... medicines... comms...
Once you have a week's worth of food... and know how to get water... secured you medicine and medical supplies... expand your stores to two weeks...
Next expand your stores to a month's worth
Next expand your stores to two (2) month's worth
Expand your stores to whatever level you want to... We suggest six (6) months as a minimum...
It's important not to get overwhelmed...
Water is an essential daily need...
You can survive only three days without water, three weeks without food.
How much do you need... plan for one gallon of water for each person per day... this is drinking water. Water needed for hygiene and dishwashing is an addition.
Bottle water is good for the short term... if you have a well how do you get water if there is no electricity?
Can you drink surface water - river / creek / lake / pond /swimming pool - water... yes but not directly if want to escape the dangers of parasites and bacteria which result in Montezuma's Revenge and an inevitable miserable death.
For surface water you will need to filter the water along with boiling water for at least 15 seconds at a rolling boil.
IMPORTANT TIP: DO NOT mix up your dirty water containers with your clean water containers... when you are using a questionable water source.
