Episode 1: Water Storage (Emergency Preparedness Basics)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j0EjDYAn2xQ Being that water is one of the most important items for Emergency Preparedness, it's where I wanted to start off first.  It's an absolutely critical item that a lot of people overlook.  After all, you can go a lot longer without food than you can without water.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0TLDKqjQS6E Do I get laughs from "the guys" when I put my mask on in the tent? Yes.
