Coming up on the 10th Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, we take a moment to ask, “Where were you and what is your story?”  There are many, many stories and we need to listen to one another about our experience…it was life-changing!

That’s what we say to our waiters when we aren’t ordering a beverage, right? Have you ever been served water at a restaurant and realize it tastes so bad you might have to order a beverage after all? Sometimes I think restaurants refrain from using water filters for that very purpose! Anyway, that’s not really the point of this article, but I wanted to bring you to a realization that tap water isn’t always very drinkable. Now, assuming you’re a reader from the US where most drinking water is supplied through public systems, you’ve probably had this experience. Water can carry many components that create poor taste and odor, as well as not-so-detectable ones, that may have some harmful effects. Since 70% of our bodies are made up of water, and we can only survive without it a few short days, isn’t it essential to make sure the water you drink is as clean as possible?

This article is going to give you a general overview of the challenges we face with our drinking water quality.

Schools tend to be a hot bed for mold, mildew, dust mites, and other IAQ issues. Long ignored, school districts are starting to pay attention to the health and learning issues that can be caused by the air in their buildings. To assist, the Environmental Protection Agency has recently launched a new app to help school officials detect  indoor air quality issues.

Many Americans are living or working in buildings contaminated by mold, mildew, bacteria, particulate, dust mites VOCs, etc. This very often can contribute to a variety of health issues. The American Lung Association says on their website that, “Poor indoor air quality can cause or contribute to the development of infections, lung cancer, and chronic lung diseases such as asthma. In addition, it can cause headaches, dry eyes, nasal congestion, nausea and fatigue. People who already have lung disease are at greater risk.”

The first step to successfully recover from a disaster is to stay healthy. Identify the tasks you can safely do yourself—without putting your health at undue risk—and the ones you need to delegate. Educate yourself now on the health risks of mold
exposure. Don’t wait until the disaster strikes. Be proactive & get prepared.

The first step in making a successful contribution to a Disaster Relief Team is to identify in what manner you can safely assist without putting your health at undue risk. It’s not a matter of whether or not to volunteer—by all means volunteer—just determine the volunteer position best suited for you.
