You all may have noticed the recent, ahem, zombie activity as of late.  It seems to be confined to the east coast for now, but I’m keeping up my guard.  One minute you’re minding your own business the next you’re a tasty snack.  No thank you.  So besides keeping a closer eye on the neighbors and making sure I have plenty of ammunition, I’ve also assembled a “Zombie Survival Kit” per the CDC.  Items include:

  • Water (1 gallon per person per day)
  • Food Storage (non-perishable)
  • Medications (this includes prescription and non-prescription meds)
  • Tools and Supplies (utility knife, duct tape, battery powered radio, etc.)
  • Sanitation and Hygiene (household bleach, soap, towels, etc.)
  • Clothing and Bedding (a change of clothes for each family member and blankets)
  • Important documents (copies of your driver’s license, passport, and birth certificate to name a few)
  • First Aid supplies (although you’re a goner if a zombie bites you, you can use these supplies to treat basic cuts and lacerations that you might get)

As the CDC is quick to point out, this kit can be used in all types of emergencies and is an important thing to keep around the house.  But in these uncertain times with face-eating becoming more and more commonplace, food storage and survival supplies are essentials.  You should also have a meeting point established and basic evacuation plan lined out should such things become necessary.  Don’t be caught unprepared!  Stay calm, plan ahead, and survive with your face intact.
