Water is essential to good health, every system in our bodies relies on water.
The Doctors says daily activities can cause us to lose water that must be replenished for our bodies to function properly, especially in hot or humid weather. You may also need extra water in the winter because heated indoor air can dry your skin.

Water, Water Everywhere

Emergency Preparedness
Disasters can happen, so itís a good idea to have a personal emergency plan and adequate supplies should the unexpected occur. Bottled water delivery is ideal for emergency water storage.

The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare recommends families keep emergency supplies on hand in case of severe weather and other disasters. Along with flashlights, batteries, canned food and other essentials, they recommend your kit include at least 10 liters of bottled water per person.2 Be sure to keep bottled water away from household cleaners, gasoline, paint thinners and other chemicals. Itís also best to store it at room temperature or cooler and away from direct sunlight.

The following tips can be helpful when preparing your home for natural disasters:
Store 1 liter Single Serve bottles and 10 liter and 5 loter bottles of drinking water for easy handling. You may want to store bottles of water in different locations for easy access.
Rotate and replace emergency food and bottled water every six months for freshness.
Put supplies in a cool, dark place away from chemicals and solvents.
Label each food and water item with the date of purchase. Note the expiration date or "use by" date.
