September is National Emergency Preparedness Month
My prepper friends and I were really concerned when the city of Toledo, Ohio was not able to use their water for quite some time. They could not even boil it to make it safe because of the toxic nature of the water.
In August 2014, two samples from a water treatment plant toxin test showed signs of microcystis. Roughly 400,000, including residents of Toledo and several surrounding communities in Ohio and Michigan were affected by the water contamination. Residents were told not to use, drink, cook with, or boil any tap water on the evening of August 1, 2014. The Ohio National Guard delivered water and food to residents living in contaminated areas. As of 3 August 2014, nobody had reported being sick and the governor had declared a state of emergency in three counties. The ban was lifted on August 4.
This is one more reason we need to tell the world about National Emergency Preparedness Month. It’s enough to make me wish every family in the world could have some type of system to purify their water!
