Emergency Water Purification When You’re Desperate And Dehydrated (And Your Forgot Your Water Filter)

Emergency Water Purification When You're Desperate And Dehydrated (And Your Forgot Your Water Filter)

If I had to choose from among the worst possible scenarios of being marooned in the wilderness, it would be one of these two predicaments …

  • First, I’m stuck in an area where there doesn’t seem to be any readily identifiable sources of water.
  • Second, I successfully found water, but since I wasn’t able to properly filter it before drinking, I’m now lost AND sick from those nasty waterborne parasites, known as cryptosporidia.

One of the reasons why the inability to hydrate with clean water is easily one of the worst possible killers in a survival scenario is because you really only have 72 hours (maximum) to come up with a solution — and if you drink the wrong stuff, then you’ll end up dehydrating yourself even faster than if you hadn’t even taken your first sip.

Having a back-up water source — or a water source that does not cost you money — is a great way to ensure that you have water for every situation. In times of disaster, you may lose water from your county or city. Or, if you have a well, a power outage can quickly cause you not to have any water.

Why Water Contamination is More Dangerous for Children

Why Water Contamination is More Dangerous for Children

The Survival Mom - In my many years teaching people about water and its impact on health, I have discovered that people in our society know shockingly little about the subject. This is even true of people who should know better. When I agreed to write this article for The Survival Mom, I thought it was a great opportunity to talk about one of the most important subjects, and one that I am passionate about; why water contamination is more dangerous for children.
