Zombie Apocalypse Survival Kit, do you have one? If in the event that the worst happens, you need to keep yourself and your family safe. If you are not prepared you might not be able to get what you need when the pawpaw hits the fan.
First of all each family member should have their own backpack. If you have a baby and do not breastfeed, you need at least two tins of formula, 5 cloth diapers, make your own out of towels if need be. There are many sites that show you how to make diapers. You need cotton diapers as you will run out of the store bought diapers. Cotton diapers can be washed and reused.
If the apocalypse happens and your baby no longer needs the things you have stored, you could always keep it to barter with. Some formulas can be eaten for extra protein and calcium if need be.
You will need 50 feet of paracord, and lots of it. Make a belt you can wear, paracord bracelet, and a paracord lanyard, all of this ensures extra rope if you need it. These ideas can be found on the web.
Fill a small container with matches, flint and a lighter. Make one for each bag incase one bag gets lost you will always have another set. I recommend matches and a lighter, if the lighters gas is finished, you have matches. This is one of the things you can never have enough of.
Each bag should have first aid kit. The very basic and if you are on chronic medication, try to get extra meds to put it in the kit. You should also have activated charcoal tablets for poisoning emergencies, rubbing alcohol, sterile pads and gauze, cotton and medical tape. For blisters on your feet use Blister Medic, make sure you have some burn gel and instant cold packs for sprains.
The first aid kit should also contain a small sterile scissors, tweezers, Quick Clot and Steri-strips. If you happen to know how to use sutures and scalpel pack that in too. For pain and fever have Ibuprofen and something for children under the age of 12.
Have a container for fishing tools such as weights or sinkers, hooks and fishing line. You can also add some sun screen and insect repellent. You should have a breacher bar incase you need to split some wood.
Have maps of your area in a plastic bag that will keep water out like a Ziploc bag. You could keep them in a pencil bag to keep them safe and together. You could also put a small compass in the bag with the maps.
Have pens or pencils with a note pad, you might have to make notes of no go zones. Binoculars are big so if you can get a mincular it will be much better. A small fixed blade knife, multitool, duct tape and some glow sticks.
These are the very basic things you will need, you can get dry food packs on amazon that are great for survival. You can read my Zombie Survival Gear on more survival gear that you will need.
Thank you for reading my article.
There are some people that scoff at preppers. I would rather be prepared and nothing happens, than something happens and I am unprepared. I never felt the need to prepare for the worst until now. If something bad should happen, what are the chances of you getting what you need in the stores? Will you be able to get enough. When people are killing each other for food and whatever else, you could be safe. I have searched for what is needed compared it to other products as I want the best I can afford.
