Halloween is right around the corner, we have out of control COVID numbers again, and people won't wear their masks or get vaccinated. Sounds like a recipe for a zombie apocalypse if I've ever heard one. Throw in how scary our monsoon season has been with wild flooding and people actually dying in their homes because of the weather and pretty soon you'll see that you really should have a properly outfitted first aid kit in your house and car.

The first thing you need is a sturdy, waterproof box. You can click here to find a good first aid box. Once you have one, here's the basics that are suggested by the Centers for Disease Control:

A first-aid guide
2 absorbent compress dressings (5 x 9 inches)
25 adhesive bandages (assorted sizes)
1 adhesive cloth tape (10 yards x 1 inch)
5 antibiotic ointment packets
5 antiseptic wipe packets
2 packets of aspirin (81 mg each)
1 emergency blanket
1 breathing barrier (with one-way valve)
1 instant cold compress
2 pair of nonlatex gloves (size: large)
2 hydrocortisone ointment packets
1 3-inch gauze roll (roller) bandage
1 roller bandage (4 inches wide)
5 3 x 3-inch sterile gauze pads
5 sterile gauze pads (4 x 4 inches)
A thermometer (non-mercury/non-glass)
2 triangular bandages
Tweezers

They have other suggestions for extra emergency meds if you or your family members can't go a couple of days without them. They also suggest that you set a calendar reminder on your phone every six months to check and either replenish your first aid kit or get rid of expired items.

As for a Zombie Apocalypse first aid kit, I highly recommend watching this video. This woman isn't your everyday survivalist. She's super funny, talks about how she got started on her survivalist journey by watching scary movies and then she tells you what is in her zombie apocalypse go bag. It's pretty funny and very educational.
