Imminent Emergency? FEMA Makes “Urgent Requirement” Request for Five Million Bottles of Water
Editor’s Comment: While we don’t know what the emergency is here, and there is no way of knowing if any sinister motives are involved in a simple request for water, it is evident enough that society is at its breaking point, and literally dozens of factors could send the system into collapse at virtually a moment’s notice.
What is happening? What may happen that would necessitate FEMA’s intervention? Just to start the conversation, there is: severe weather, including record floods in Louisiana; tension of the presidential elections; riots and protests designed to clash with police and escalate racial tensions; the fragile economy, with its storm clouds threatening to drench the entire globe in crisis.
Maybe nothing will happening, but there is a very real chance that something bigger is headed down the pipe. What do you think?
Why Did FEMA Just Put a Rush Order on 5 Million Bottles Of Water?
by Daisy Luther
Sometimes, we can get a hint of things that are to come by watching what the government is doing to prepare. After all, their intel is way better than ours, and they do have a tendency to keep secrets. Of special interest to anyone who like to don the tinfoil and try to figure out what may be coming down the pipe are the actions of FEMA, the agency which is in charge of “managing” emergencies here in the US.
So when they place a large order for something that they want absolutely immediately, I pay attention.
A few days ago, FEMA put out a solicitation for 5 million bottles of water, to be delivered within 2 days. It said they had an “urgent requirement” for this water.
Bottled WaterThat sounds like a heck of an emergency, and one that might be approaching quite rapidly. Soliciting a supplier to deliver 5 million bottles of water with 48 hours notice doesn’t seem to be the normal way of doing business for FEMA, does it?

And why are the trucks to be left there for 30 days? That’s another thing that strikes me as interesting.
One possibility is that they are getting ready for the potential hurricanes headed for parts of the United States, but whether the pending emergency is that or something more sinister, we’d all do well to make sure our own water preparedness is up to speed.
What can we learn from this?
Water. You need water.
If you aren’t already well-supplied, stop what you’re doing and stock up on water. All sorts of water. Hand washing water, drinking water, water for pets. If you’re a prepper, you know the drill. You may already have everything you need on hand. Take a moment to check that you have everything you need.
We aren’t always lucky enough to get a warning that a water emergency could be approaching, so when you actually do get one, you’d be foolish not to heed it and get prepared for your family.
