EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS INFO-VIDS
In this section we will present selected videos that may help you get a better idea about various parts and phases of emergency preparation. In addition we will have some videos about products, and/or alternatives. We will try to have the top section of videos dedicated to the topic of the month. Each section of videos will be labeled. We have also listed the length of the video in the description below it. Don’t be scared by longer videos. They may be more comprehensive. Some of the Links may be Slide like presentations and will not have a specified length. Please realize that this is a growing site so there will be more information as we have time to add it. If you have an thing that you think we should add please let me know.

Good Video on water storage
Very good information about water storage, containers, etc but a little lengthy. Time 15:41
Water filters are getting better all the time.
Clean water is a world wide problem and because of that water purification and filtration systems are getting better. Not all of the things said in the previous over is still accurate.
HydroBlu versa Sawyer Mini
Both are low cost but the flow rate is greater for the HydroBlu and used for a group allows more water faster.
Filters come in all types and sizes
This system is being used all over the world in camp situations. It is moderately expensive and needs to have water (dirty or clean) in the can at all times to keep the filter wet. So once you start using it you need to keep using it.
