After weeks of wildfires and tinder dry conditions, the forecast calls for rain, finally! Just in time for National Preparedness month and the #14gallons challenge!
It’s really simple, you can go days without food, but only around 72 hours without water.
So stop stocking cans until you’ve stockpiled 1 gallon of drinking water, per person or pet, per day, for a full 14 day supply!
Here’s how you can participate.
1) Obtain 14 gallons of water.
2) Take a creative photo with it.
3) Post your photo online (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) with the hashtag #14gallons, and challenge three of your friends to do the same.
Simple! and so very important!

Storing 14 gallons per person doesn’t have to be hard, or expensive, but is the most important thing you can do to prepare for a major disaster like the Big One.
