Bluffdale Ready-Sanitation in a Disaster

Thursday, November 16, 2017

Human waste is one of the deadliest substances on earth. Where sanitation is poor, death & disease are rampant. Our current systems for disposing of waste can be affected by many situations. • If we lose water, we lose sewer. • If we lose power for an extended time, we also lose sewer. • In an earthquake or landslide sewer lines can rupture. In each of these scenarios, our instincts might be to use a camp potty, an RV or even dig a pit latrine. These solutions are very dangerous if we don’t know how to properly set up and dispose of the waste. They will bring animals, vermin and insects into our environment that spread disease. Exposure to human waste will make your family very sick. This special workshop Kathy brings will educate you on all aspects of sanitation; from pesticides to cleansers as well as how to set up a sanitary temporary bathroom. It is relevant to families, first responders, neighborhoods and communities.
