Safe food and water supplies are a major concern following a natural disaster such as a tornado, flood, hurricane or blizzard. Families who live in disaster-prone areas may benefit from being prepared in the event of disaster. Knowing how to safely handle food and water in the immediate few days after the disaster can reduce stress, worry and inconvenience.

Recent natural disasters have emphasized the importance of emergency preparedness. Everyone should have individual and family evacuation plans in place. It is critical that each family have a planned evacuation arrangement and an evacuation "to-go" box ready for emergencies.

After a disaster such as a hurricane or flood, your water supplies may have become contaminated or been temporarily cut off. This guide briefly explains how to disinfect water using household chemicals, how to find water in and around your home, and how to store water safely. Listen to and follow public announcements from your local authorities.
