BNHA + Safe N’ Ready Emergency Water Program

Emergency water storage supplies are critical in Southern California. The ongoing drought exacerbates this problem… in the event of a large earthquake, it may be difficult to get sufficient water into the region, especially in the short term.

The Disaster Prep Committee in the Bungalow Heaven Neighborhood Association has started up a pilot program to encourage emergency water storage in the Neighborhood. We’ve arranged to purchase certificates from a local vendor good for 55 gallon water barrels, together with water purification and pumps, an entire kit. The normal retail price for this is about $125 plus tax, we’re selling the certificates for $109.90 plus tax, so $119.79, made out to “Bungalow Heaven Neighborhood Association”.

If you’d like one of the certificates, you can contact me at psc@cms.caltech.edu. I’ll have them in a couple of days, and I can deliver them to your house for a check made out to the Neighborhood Association. You can redeem the certificate at the vendor, Safe N’ Ready, on Rosemead Blvd.

If you’d like one of the barrels, but you would need assistance getting it, please let me know in your email and I can arrange for delivery or I can pick it up for you.

Since this is a pilot program, the first 10 comers get the first batch of certificates. If we have enough takers, I’ll expand the program immediately.
