Emergency preparedness - sanitation safety
From Emory Kidd, Director
Metcalfe County Emergency Management
Tips during September preparedness month: Getting into the weeds, sanitation is key to keeping your family safe. Bleach is the ultimate disinfectant, know how to use it. We all found out how critical toilet paper is in 2020, you haven't run out yet, have you?
Keeping a ready supply of cleaning items is important.
Keep paper plates and such if you want to limit water use.
Have plenty of trash bags on hand. Know how to flush the toilet by dumping that non-potable water in the tank and yes, yucky as it sounds, limit flushing to conserve water if you don't have running water.
If you are going to need to leave your home, think rough camping - invest in a five gallon bucket with sanitary supplies, bags, etc.
If you want to learn some skills, how about a fall camping trip? Plan for shelter, cooking over a campfire, living without electronics, digging a latrine, using food that doesn’t need refrigeration, all the things that go along with a real camping trip? You don’t even have to go anywhere, you could do it in your backyard, even!
