Fact: Bottled water plays an important role in public safety. Bottled water is also an essential safety net in times of natural disaster or crisis. It provides critical drinking water when public supplies are rendered unpotable, such as following a hurricane, wildfire or flood, or other emergency. When a “boil water alert” is sent out by a community, bottled water can be an important resource for consumers. During the last 3 weeks in September 2008, Nestlé Waters donated more than 1.25 million bottles of water to the American Red Cross and AmeriCares, and has supplied FEMA and local disaster agencies with additional millions of bottles of clean drinking water.
