Importance of Sanitation in Your Emergency Preparedness Plan
Emergency planning and preparedness is not only about storing food and water. Often, we leave out important aspects of preparing for disasters and emergencies. One of the common things left out is about our plans for sanitation.
Natural disasters like floods, earthquakes, and hurricanes can significantly affect your sanitary needs. Sanitation facilities are very much affected, and unhealthy conditions can cause health problems and outbreaks. Our water sources are always at risk of being contaminated, especially during floods. Our sanitary needs, however, would require water. Clean and potable water, on the other hand, are scarce especially after disasters and natural calamities.
