    About time.  Zombie preparedness is just all around good planning.  Jas and I have been planning for months.

    I think they've capitalized on a WAY current and popular trend to make people aware of what they need in an emergency preparedness kit, which everyone should have on hand anyway.

    Actually, it seems kind of like clever marketing.

    I think it's funny. It sounds like someone basically wrote the standard emergency preparedness procedures (first aid kit! canned food! flashlight with batteries! talk about an escape plan with your family!) and just wrote some zombie stuff with it.

    1. Wasn't April Fool's Day awhile back?

    2. Where is ZombieNates when you need her?

    I think its a great way to make the message of preparedness relevant to media saturated/zombie crazed people.

    I think it's a little ridiculous that they had to write "emergency preparedness" around a zombie apocolypse to get people to pay attention.

    It would depend upon what you can offer.  We can't be feeding and sheltering people unless they legitimately bring something to the group that hasn't already been covered.

    True.  But some people ARE ridiculous and wouldn't take action if their life actually depended upon it.

    I agree with Missy, clever marketing.  And look - it worked.  It got people (us for example) talking about it.
