Security Planning that Includes Essentials Over Time

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is readying deliveries of a fairly mundane, but nonetheless essential, item – bottled drinking water – to be on standby for a period of two-and-a-half to six years into the future.  Government Security News advises that FEMA plans to award an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract for a minimum of 18,000 and a maximum of 5.4 million one-liter bottles of water for use “in support of national emergencies that may be man-made, natural disasters or a National Special Security Event.”

That raises the question of what everyday, possibly forgettable, though critical, items should you be mindful of in your own long-term security planning?
