So the number one corollary of the 72-Hour Rule is this: Make sure you have, or access to, water. A gallon a day is a good supply, thought you can get by with much less for short periods of time.

Haven't had a problem with this yet

Food. though not as crucial as water, is also critical. You can survive three hungry days, but by the end, you'll be weak and shaky and easily distracted - not ideal in an emergency. So you need to make sure you can always get our hands on three days' worth of nutrition. This can be something as simple as GORP

... until the Cleaners start guarding water towers


Guidebook:

With everything else falling apart, you'll be happy to know that you shouldn't have a problem finding water. As outlined in the "Fragile Sytems" section, most of the city is supplied by gravity, with chemical treatments injected into the water at several points along its journey from reservoir to faucet. This water will keep coming even after the electrical grid collapses, although it will no longer be purified. (See "Purify Water," page 74.)

In a developing catastrophic situation, there may be more water than you want. As regulator valves fail over time, your building may end up flooded by high-pressure water that yout residential fixtures cannot contain. My suggestion is that your go-bag doesn't need to contain three gallons of water - after all, water weighs five pounds a gallon - but you do need to know where you can find it.

The first time I read this I thought it was a little melodramatic. The second time I read it was on a day where I'd missed a meal for the first time in my life. Today I read it again right after I heard that people are actually starving. What do you know, Merch?
