The following are some of the most common reasons of power outages: Demand for energy has increa

The Basics of Emergency Candles

Candles were first used by Romans to light their homes, travel at night, and for religious ceremonies many years ago. Emergency candles are still a mainstay for survival kits after 5,000 years. When you can't see in the dark, there's not much you can do. An emergency candle, on the other hand, is one of the most underappreciated preparation supplies.

Moreover, pint-sized bags provide a good serving size, although gallon-sized bags may be better for individuals who plan to use salt for several of the items on this list. Extinguish a grease fire Salt, like baking soda, can be used to extinguish grease fires (a Class B fire). Unlike baking soda, which works by absorbing heat and smothering the fire, salt works by absorbing heat and smothering the fire. This can be lifesaving in calamities like as earthquakes, when the risk of gas and electrical fires increases dramatic

Seven Reasons To Filter Your Tap Water

To survive, we require water. Humans are composed up to two-thirds of water, which is bonded in our cell membranes. Water is more necessary than food; we can survive for up to a month without food, but only a week without water. This emphasizes the importance of drinking clean, pure water. Water that has not been treated, filtered, or purified can make you sick. Water filters and water filtration systems are examples of modern water technology. Filtered tap water is superior than both regular tap water and bottled water.  Tap water, for example, includes chlorine as a disinfectant. This kills bacteria and inhibits the spread of illnesses transported by pipes and possible contamination, but do you really need to drink that much of it after it's clean and out of your tap?  Around 80 percent of the tap water is said to be contaminated with over 300 pollutants, more than half of which were not regulated by the EPA. Add to that an ever-expanding list of new chemical compounds that enter
