Why Did FEMA Just Put a Rush Order on 5 Million Bottles Of Water?

fema waterBy 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.

From FedBizOpps:

Bottled Water
Solicitation Number: HSFE70-16-Q-0034
Agency: Department of Homeland Security
Office: Federal Emergency Management Agency
Location: Response Branch
Solicitation Number:
HSFE70-16-Q-0034
Notice Type:
Combined Synopsis/Solicitation
Synopsis:
Added: Aug 24, 2016 8:16 pm

FEMA has an Urgent requirement for bottled water.

Quantity up to 5,000,000

Bottled Water must be delivered in 1/2 or 1 liter bottles only

All Trailers are required to be dropped at delivery location for up to 30 days

All bottled water must be received by Friday, August 26, 2016
Delivery Hours 1300 – 2000

Delivery Location

ISB Maxwell AFB
55 Lemay Plaza
Montgomery, AL 36112

That 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.

If you want to learn more about preparing for a water emergency, you can check out my book, The Prepper’s Water Survival Guide. If you aren’t prepared yet and you really want to be, check out my 10-week class, which begins on Sept. 11.

Whatever route you take to getting prepped, don’t delay. If FEMA wanted to be ready within 48 hours, that could mean that we have even less time.

  1. Maybe they discovered the five million bottles they currently have recently expired.

      • You know how government is. Use the money or lose the budget. My guess would be that one of their buddies owns the supplier and sought some personal gain. FEMA’s always wasting resources. But heck! The people shouldn’t be concerned if they’d already filled their cabinets and closets with all the water they possibly could.

  2. TY for making me laugh – Undecider…hilarious.

  3. Will this water be poisoned. Depopulation!

  4. Stop trying to freak people out! The federal government’s fiscal year ends on September 30th. Delivery has to be before the fiscal year end to come out of that budget. If they have money that needs to be spent before the fiscal year end, of course they will buy items in bulk.

  5. Maybe for a FEMA camp? Maybe a scheme to allow Nestle to raise their prices claiming a shortage? Who bottled the water? Maybe it’s a crony deal. Maybe it’s for the government’s underground bunkers or the banksters’ bunkers. One thing is for sure, it’s not or us – we just pay for it. The EPA is doing this just because they CAN – and their budget is way too high

  6. There is a hurricane in the gulf. And it is hurricane season. Maybe they’re finally tired of being called “losers” for always dropping the ball…

  7. There actually could be an ordinary explanation for it. Hurricane Hermione is about to slam Florida’s Gulf Coast, after all, and Alabama is on the Gulf of Mexico, and is not expected to itself be hit.
