The only difference between adventure and disaster is preparedness.

What else does my kit need?

The last things you need in your zombie supply kit are as follows:

HYGIENE SUPPLIES: towelettes or baby wipes, garbage bags, hand sanitizer and feminine hygiene supplies. Zombies hate cleanliness and sanitary conditions.

TOOLS: Leatherman tool, wrench, foldable shovel, ax….you know why.

LOCAL MAPS: If you have to exit your zombie-occupied neighborhood in a hurry, it might be nice to know alternate ways around known infestation areas. Also, learn how to read a map. Consider purchasing a compass. Also, consider learning how to use a compass, if you don’t already know.

PRESCRIPTION MEDICATION, GLASSES, DIAPERS, PET FOOD, CASH...anything specific to you and your family that you might need if you had to evacuate quickly or be stuck in your home for an untold amount of time.

Our recommendation is to have two kits. One “STUCK AT HOME” Kit and one “GOTTA GET OUTTA HERE” Kit. The “stuck at home kit” should have plenty of items to keep your family comfortable and safe to stay in your home for a minimum of three days, perhaps without electricity.

The “gotta go” kit should be in a backpack, easily portable and have supplies that you would need to be comfortable and safe away from home. A “gotta go” kit is perfect for keeping in the car. Most people are never far from their vehicle and, in the case of sudden zombie occupation, you can get up and go with your gear already packed. Refuse to be a tasty zombie-snack—get yourself ready TODAY!

Ok, you've learned the basics! Now come check out more preparedness and safety information on Saturday at the Three Rivers Mall. The Zombie Preparedness Fair will be held from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Don't forget to stop by our booth and say hi! Or bring cookies. Whatever.
