Are you ready for anything?

Are you ready for anything?

I chuckled a little at this the first time I saw it about a year ago but after thinking about it for a while I have to agree.  If your ready for the Zombie Apocalypse then your ready for any disaster out there.  The CDC is excellent at planning for just about anything.  I would say you could take their disaster preparedness plan and re-use it for darn near anything you need to plan for.  Going for a camping trip?  Your going to need to plan for a clean water supply as well as food, clothing, shelter.  Don't forget a few tools like an ax, shovel, and flashlights + batteries.  First aid supplies also come in handy when you least suspect them.  Below is the CDC short list to pack for.  I would wager if you used this to pack for anything from a day trip to a month long hike through the woods that you would survive and come out fairly healthy.  I also believe anyone following this automatically should earn at least a couple Boy Scout Merit badges.

If you're    ready for a zombie apocalypse, then you're ready for any emergency.

  • Water (1 gallon per person per day)
  • Food (stock up on non-perishable items that you eat regularly)
  • 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 during a tornado orhurricane)
