October is Zombie Preparedness Month

bloody evil

October is Zombie Preparedness Month, which means we're supposed to remind you to check your gear, replace anything that's expired, change batteries, service what may require it, review your plans and make sure everything is up-to-date. If you haven't already begun  preparations, it's probably too late, but you best get your sh*t together soon.

Either way, we've provided a few resources below that are valuable to both the noob or the seasoned prepper. We've found that (surprisingly) Pinterest is a great resource for a lot of Doomsday, Survival and Zombie advice.

Here's our list of some very basic essentials that you can order right now. Other items (guns, medicine, comfort stuff, snacks, evacuation plan, transport, etc) should also be considered.

Gear:

- SAS Survival Handbook: $16
- The Art of Eating Through the Zombie Apocalypse: $14

*Listen, we know that a Zombie Apocalypse is very UNLIKELY, but we also know that being prepared isn't a bad idea. We live under the threat of both natural and man-made disasters. It's always worth having a plan and some supplies on hand just in case. We use the ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE as an excuse to be ready if/when disaster strikes. Take this month to go over the essentials for the home (smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, clean out the pantry, check expiration dates on medicine), service your car (check the tires and all of the fluids), update the emergency contact sheet and if you or a family member takes medications, have any allergies, illnesses, etc...make sure you list them on a sheet also and keep it by the phone. Stock up on some pertinent supplies and make sure you know where they are when you need them.
