Emergency Preparedness – Toiletology 101
There is disagreement over who was the inventor of the modern flush toilet – Thomas Crapper (1837-1910), an English sanitary engineer, or Sir John Harrington, another Englishman of the 16th Century.
At the end of World War I fewer than 30% of U.S. homes had bathrooms and returning G.I.s began to bring plumbing indoors, privy to the influences of Mr. Crapper and Mr. John encountered in Europe.
This invention, largely ignored, has done more to revolutionize the world’s health than has any vaccine.
QUESTION: What back up sanitation system do you have in your preparedness program if your current porcelain appliance fails? Earthquakes reshuffle resources, and if water systems are compromised, sewer systems generally are too. Would an earthquake send you outside again, or have you already flushed out an alternative solution. Waterless, sanitized, containerized systems are available. You can find help with this head teaser from (your emergency preparedness specialist).
SEE THE NEED AND THEN PROCEED, TO BE PREPARED.
