Preparing a Basic Zombie Emergency Kit

Share with friends


Zombie plagues can range from inconvenient to devastating. But you can take some simple steps to minimize their impact on you and your family, and/or maximize your chance of survival.

When preparing for a possible undead hordes emergency situation, it’s best to think first about the basics of survival: guns, blunt objects, sharp objects.

Recommended Items to Include in a Basic Zombie Emergency Kit:

  1. Guns, at least one per person, with high-caliber handguns as primary weapons and shotguns as backups. Also consider high-caliber rifles.
  2. Ammunition: at least a three-day supply
  3. Baseball bats, either wood or aluminum (although aluminum is preferred for easier cleaning)
  4. Hatchets or machetes
  5. Hand sanitizer
  6. Flashlight and extra batteries
  7. Moist towelettes, garbage bags, and plastic ties for body removal
  8. Local maps

Additional Items to Consider Adding to an Emergency Supply Kit

  1. Prescription medications and glasses
  2. Complete change of clothing including a long-sleeved shirt, long pants, and sturdy shoes. Consider additional clothing if the zombies in your area are particularly squishy.
  3. Emergency reference material such as a first aid book or books about zombies (World War Z, Patient Zero, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies)
  4. Fire extinguisher
  5. Paper, pencil and/or permanent marker
