- Avoid touching eyes and mouth with uncleaned hands.
- Have a pack of tissues handy in your car and pocket.
- Keep a small amount of soap and towels in your car in case places you visit don't have them.
- Rinse contaminants from tops of cans before opening them.
- Don't share drinks, food, toothbrushes with others.
- Carry around your own water bottle to avoid drinking from unfiltered water fountains and dirty cups.
- Use your own telephone, pencils, and hand tools.
- Thoroughly wash fruits, then peel skins.
- Use separate dishes and utensils for cooked and uncooked food.
- To avoid attracting bugs, wipe cooking and eating areas,
then wash the wipes.
- Move away before others cough. You can catch tubucolois.
- Store foods in airtight containers.
If the water lines are damaged or if damage is suspected, do not flush the toilet.
The water remaining in the fixture is not sufficient to flush the wastes down the sewer.
Clogging may result and your living conditions then become just that much more uncomfortable.
A latrine— a hole dug in the ground to collect human waste —
is not appropriate and illegal in urban locations because they contaminate the water table.
Untreated raw sewage can pollute fresh ground water supplies.
To create a temporary, emergency toilet for safely collecting and handling human waste:
- Locate toilets at least 100 feet away
from food preparation or eating areas and surface water bodies such as lakes, rivers, streams, and at least 100 feet downhill or away from any drinking water source (well or spring), home, apartment, or campsite.
- Provide a way to keep toilet paper clean — off the ground and protected from rain.
- Provide a place next to the emergency toilet to wash hands.
Offer soap, running water, and paper towels.
- Have nearby a deodorant/disinfectant spray such as
a solution of 1 part liquid bleach to 10 parts water.
Spray this into the container after each use and before tieing the bag.
- Have nearby a twist tie to securely close up the bag after use.
- Keep doors and covers tightly closed when the toilet is not in use.
This keeps out insects and animals and prevents injury.
- Always supervise small children when they are using the emergency toilet.
To convert a flush toilet or to make an emergency toilet from a 5 gallon pail:
- Line the inside of a toilet bowl, pail, or another appropriately sized waste container
with two heavy-duty plastic 10 gallon garbage bags.
The second bag protects from leakage.
- Place kitty litter, fireplace ashes, or sawdust into the bottom of the bags.
- At the end of each day, the bagged waste should be securely tied and removed to a
protected location such as a garage, basement, outbuilding, and so on,
until a safe disposal option is available.
- During a declared emergency, these bags may be included with the regular garbage
if a public announcement has been made that allows this method of disposal.

Poem: What If Jesus Came?
Would you have to change your clothes before you let Him in?
Or hide some magazines, and put the Bible where they'd been?
Would you hide your worldly music and put some hymn books out?
Could you let Jesus walk right in, or would you rush about?
And I wonder - if the Savior spent a day or two with you,
Would you go right on doing the things you always do?
Would you go right on saying the things you always say?
Or would life for you continue as it does from day to day?
Would you take Jesus with you everywhere you go?
Or would you maybe change your plans for just a day or so?
Would you be glad to have Him meet your closest friends?
Or would you hope they stay away, until His visit ends?
Would you be glad to have Him stay forever on and on?
Or would you sigh with great relief when He at last was gone?
It might be interesting to know, the things that you would do,
If Jesus came in person, to spend some time with you.
