Power outages are becoming more common due to storms, aging transmission grids, accidents and criminal acts. This hand pump can help citizens maintain a potable water supply. The more self-sufficient citizens are in having water, food, medicine, medical supplies and other basic needs, the less likely they will overload the local emergency services agencies in a power outage or other widespread emergency.
Please copy this document and distribute it to your local community via school activities, churches, civic clubs or local businesses.
Buy the parts and build a pump now. The parts are already scarce due to low inventory stock management practices in stores.
In such an emergency, the fate of yourself, you family and your community is in your hands. Will you be prepared to survive it?
