Community Services have announced the release of an “Emergency Guide and Grab and Go Kit”.

The Emergency Guide and Grab and Go Kit has been developed to provide you with guidance on how to prepare and act during a range of emergencies.

The Kit includes two parts:

— A Grab and Go Booklet that can be used to fill in your details for easy reference during an emergency. This includes space to record emergency contacts, details of neighbours and medical information. There are also tear-out information cards for you to exchange contact details with trusted neighbours.

The information in this Kit will assist you in developing an emergency plan for your home and have all your key information in one place in case you are required to evacuate. There are some things that you can do to make sure you are well-equipped for an emergency or unplanned situation:

— Make an emergency plan in case you need to evacuate your home
— Put together an emergency kit
— Record your medical information
— Keep important contact details together and up-to-date.

The documents are available for download.

Maybe it’s a 4-bore, which looks like it has more uses than just taking down African elephants.

1000 rounds of ammo, if you’re talking a round like 308, is around 25 kgs alone. Sounding more like Grab and Drag.

He did say high powered, so to me, .308 is an intermediate round at the lower/middle end of the scale in terms of stopping power. In post apocalyptic times, I’d want guaranteed stopping power, so I’d go for .375H&H. It will stop anything from a shambling zombie to a charging bull elephant and also makes an absolute mess of a cars engine block.

My grab and go kit consists of a shotgun, high powered rifle and a thousand rounds of ammo.

These will ensure that in the case of an emergency, I will have all the supplies i’ll need and also be safe from looters, zombies, aliens etc…..

Being ex/current RAAF, I will assume that your chai lattegoes without saying.

What – no tinfoil hat????

It’s not in his kit, it’s everyday wear and wound tight, which explains a lot

Presumably Captain RAAF is going to hide in the forests and only emerge to hunt obese school children for food.

If he is/was in the RAAF he’d be lucky to hit anything

You’ll be shot at Checkpoint Charlie (he didn’t even crack a smile)

My SHTF bag has $10k cash in mixed currency, four passports in different names and nationalities, and some spacefood sticks.

tbh in a real emergency, a high powered rifle or shotgun is all you’ll need. Strong gun control means you’ll have the upper hand against everyone else.

Water, tinned food, knives, medication, torches, fire starting gear etc. There are a number of “survival pantry” guides available on the internet, including one sponsored by the Federal Government.

And, as the Captain says, don’t forget the shooters.

I’m pretty lazy, so I liked “Duck and cover” more…
