Water

One gallon of water per person per day is what you want to have on hand for emergencies.  This supply should be replaced every six months, so how about starting this bi-annual routine this weekend?

For more information on storing water visit the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission.

And while we’re checking on our water supply, how about checking your smoke alarm batteries (and replace as needed!), too? Here’s to a very SF72 (AKA prepared) spring and summer!
