Water Purification Bag

CERT Members,

We have been contacted by the folks that created the Day One Response water bag- a product that filters any water and makes it safe to drink.  The product can be viewed here:

They have donated 6 bags (one for each ERD) to use.  They are also offering a special deal if they can get 100 orders from our CERT Members.  I've included their message below.  The regular price of the bag on Amazon is about $80.


The Company DayOne Response ( has provided to the San Mateo CERT team the ability to purchase their water purification system for bulk price of $55.99 (a 30% discount) if we can get more than 100 people interested in purchasing them.


If you are interested please send an email to Robert Callaway at  Please place the word “Waterbag" in the subject line.
