Our neighbors at Lamorinda CERT are offering a collection of emergency water storage containers this month. You can find various sizes: five, 15 or 55 gallons, by separate items or in kits with all the parts:

Why might you be interested in this? Water is one thing you can’t live without, and you might be without for 30 days or more. From their Water Drum Program info:

A reliable water supply is an important part of any preparedness program. Following a major earthquake, EBMUD says that they will get most residential customers back online within 30 days. You need to be ready to have drinking, cooking and sanitation water in the meantime. Municipal governments will distribute potable water supplies within several days but that means standing in line with containers to get your rationed water. The most reliable way to assure adequate water is to store water at your home and office.

Note: Order by June 18, and you must be able to pick up your order on June 26 or 27 in Moraga. For more information, here are pages to order their supplies, information about their program, and their frequently asked questions page.
