Keep at least a three-day supply of water per person. Store a minimum of one gallon of
water per person per day (two quarts for drinking, two quarts for food preparation and
sanitation). Store water in plastic containers such as soft drink bottles. Avoid using
containers that will decompose or break, such as milk cartons or glass bottles. A
normally active person needs to drink at least two quarts of water each day. Hot
environments and strenuous activity can double that amount. Children, nursing mothers,
and people who are sick will also need more.
