How do you prepare for a zombie apocalypse? Assemble a home emergency kit with all the supplies you need to survive on your own for a minimum of three days, make an emergency plan and practice it with your family so everyone knows what to do. And those are the same preparations you make to be ready for hurricanes, tornadoes, severe storms, winter weather, floods, fires and any of the other disasters we can face in North Carolina. http://www.readyforsyth.org/
So, if you’re ready for zombies, you’re ready for anything! The event will feature a number of state and local emergency preparedness and first response agencies in addition to volunteer organizations that will provide information on how to be prepared for disasters and emergencies. When grocery shopping, think of our neighbors who are hungry and grab a few non-perishables to take to the race for the Second Harvest Food Bank! Save the date! More info to come!
