Disasters can happen at any time. Are you prepared?
A natural disaster can happen at any time. Some disasters give warning like a storm preceding a flood. Others, like earthquakes give no warning. Once a disaster happens, the time to prepare is gone and all you can do is cope. At a minimum, you should prepare to be isolated and on your own for at least a minimum of 3 days and nights. There will likely be the loss of utilities after a disaster. Power outages are a given, but water may be scarce as well. The phone system may be inoperable. Your only source of news will be the car radio, assuming your local radio station has generator equipment. There might not be medical help for minor cuts or broken bones for several days.
The Emergency Hand Pump is a wise addition to any Multipure water filter system purchase. This has been used when earthquakes, hurricanes, fires, snowstorms, flooding, and power outages have struck North America. Consider this simple tool for emergency preparedness. Water from many sources can be chemically treated and then made potable by hand pumping it through a Multipure unit to address impurities.
