During this water crisis in Jackson, AARP Mississippi wants to make sure you know how to protect yourself and your loved ones. If you have water, please remember: Do not drink tap water and don’t let your pets drink it. Also, please remember to use boiled water or bottled water to brush your teeth, cook, and wash dishes.

The Mississippi Rapid Response Coalition, in partnership with the City of Jackson, is distributing bottled water at sites throughout the city. You can get information at their websites and social media pages. You can also find links to the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency and the city of Jackson below.
