The Center For Disease Control (CDC) has recently released a zombie comic to teach about emergency preparedness. Now the CDC claims that this comic is not based on any truth. They claim that this comic is just a fun and innovative way to teach about general emergency preparations. But we here at Zombie Prep Kit know better….

The CDC has also made this list of preparation items. Once again, we here at Zombie Prep Kit think that this is a great start, but a proper Zombie Preparedness Kit needs quite a bit more….


Assemble the following items to create a kit for your home, office, school, or vehicle:

  • Water – one gallon per person, per day
  • Food – nonperishable, easy-to-easy-prepare items (minimum 3 day supply)
