Following a disaster, there are two overlapping sinister challenges that (over the long-term) will cause more misery, disease, and death than the event. This deadly sanitation combo will quickly kill far more people than starvation or most other issues. Be prepared to overcome them, before they overcome you and your household!
Live Zoom presentation will be on Saturday, May 14th, and the recording will be available to watch by the following Monday.
After the Event Serial Killer
When “things” happen, there are areas that households can work through on their own (food, shelter, light, clothing, stored water, first aid, etc.). However, there are a few areas that are very ‘public’, and absolutely require unified participation from the ‘community’.
Recognize that if you are doing everything correctly, but others around you are not, your ability to stay well is drastically diminished or totally negated. At the top of this list, two major issues go hand in hand with disasters of significant magnitude and duration —
FAILED SANITATION, and its twin sister lack of SANITARY WATER.
