After water, food, and shelter, sanitation becomes one of the most critical things to consider in an emergency situation. There are two aspects of sanitation as far as e-prep is concerned. First is the literal disposal of sewage and waste. We have touched on this subject briefly and plan to explore some more options in the future. It’s not a very fun thing to think or talk about but we must be brave and consider it. The second component of sanitation involves practicing good hygiene for cleanliness and health reasons. Without taking sanitary measures, diseases such as diarrhea and cholera may occur.
