Some people dont believe a zombie apocalypse could break out while others already have an entire plan set up, which side are you on?
#9 – The Actual Zombie Apocalypse Survival Kit
A company named Gerber actually designed a knife kit in anticipation of the zombie apocalypse. This set includes two machetes, an ax, and three other knives. Each knife was chosen for its multi-functioning capabilities and its ability to hack apart a human body, should the need arise.
#8 – A New Home
Emergencies often uproot families from their homes, either destroying them or making them unsuitable to live in. Ozark gives you a home away from home. The Ozark Trail tent is 16X16 feet and can house up to 12 people. The spacious tent has three separate rooms, everything you need to get set up is already included, and it takes less than 2 minutes. Definitely an item you’ll want to keep in your garage until the time comes.
#7 – The Zombie Proof Safe House
KWK Promes created what they call “The Safe House” which is a beautiful piece of architecture that has movable walls and slabs of concrete which move to cover every inch of door, window or any other orifice that disastrous smoke, bandits or even zombies could try to get through.
#6 – A Good Defense is a Good Offense
The crossbow is one of the most underused items in an emergency situation, now not all disasters call for this type of protection, but with a crossbow you can protect yourself and your family as well as hunt for game, the whole time remaining completely silent. One of the most common engagement techniques to get a zombie’s attention is through noise. Often it is portrayed in comics and shows and movies that gunshots are often the cause of an individual’s demise simply because more and more zombies are attracted by the noise, soon overtaking the unfortunate soul. With the crossbow, you no longer have that problem, they are as quiet as they are deadly.
#5 – Noah’s Ark
A man from China spent two years creating this six-ton giant yellow sphere called the Noah’s Ark of China that protects against water, fire, radiation and high pressure. The vessel is four meters in diameter and is able to house a family of three with enough food to survive ten months. Each capsule costs an average $235,500 USD to create, but if it ensures the survival of your family for even a couple of months, it seems well worth the price.
#4 – To Hear the News
One of the first things people do when disaster strikes is turn on the news to see what’s going on. If the power is out or the new casters cannot get a signal to broadcast, you don’t want to be left in the dark. Dynamo created a hand crank radio that will solve that problem. This radio will let you stay up to date with what is going on around you, no electricity necessary. Simply crank the handle around until enough energy is produced to get a signal, and tune into whichever station you want. This model claims that 1 minute of hand cranking will allow you over 30 minutes of continuous torch light, 5 minutes of cell phone talk time, or 5 minutes of radio play time. That’s a lot of stuff you can do after only a minute of cranking.
#3 – The Air You Breathe
One of the quickest ways you will die in an apocalypse situation is if you don’t have enough oxygen to breathe. The best way to ensure you have enough air to survive is to purchase a mask. While a dust mask or the cup of a bra may work in a pinch, you’ll really want to invest in a gas mask which has specific filtration devices to give you the best possible air you can get.
#2 – The LifeStraw
The LifeStraw, created by Vestergaard, is a filtration device that is shaped and used like a straw to change contaminated water into water that is safe enough to drink. They can be found on websites such as Amazon.com for about $10, a great item to stock up on for any type of disaster since each straw can filter up to 1,000 liters of water.
#1 – The More You Know
The best tool you could possibly have for any type of disaster, even the apocalypse, is knowledge. If you are thrown into the jungle with no idea what you are doing, you probably won’t live to tell the tale. However, if you have read and researched everything you could about the jungle then you would have a better idea of how to survive, and you’ll be able to put what you learned into practice. Some of the best books you could read to prepare for the end of the world would be The Zombie Survival Guide, 100 Deadly Skills, Bush Craft 101, SAS Survival Handbook and Prepper’s Long-Term Survival Guide.
