The German government is considering telling the public to stockpile food and water in case of disasters or an armed attack, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung newspaper reported in German on Sunday.
The newspaper cited the text of a "civil defense concept" that the German cabinet will consider this Wednesday. This would be Germany's first civil defense concept since the Cold War and was commissioned in 2012.
The plan would require the German public to hold food supplies to last up to 10 days and 10 liters of drinking water per person, to last for five days. Plus, the public would be told to hold a fallback supply of energy and cash.
The 69-page report also discussed the need for civilian support of the armed forces, a reliable alarm system, the reinforcement of buildings and sufficient capacity in the health system.
Germany suffered two Islamist attacks last month and a shooting onslaught by a disturbed teenager.
