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:

— An Emergency Guide that outlines key emergencies that could occur and how you can prepare for them. This includes how to prepare for emergencies such as earthquakes, bushfires and storms.

— 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.

Water, shelter, clothing and medical supplies can all be taken from people who don’t have guns.

Along with food, booze, and potential breeding partners.

And more guns. One can never have too many guns.

Haha, that made no sense! I’m going to be so rooted in an emergency.

OK, we’ve discussed what needs to be in our Go-kits, an each settled on what we will have in our own kit. But where to go and how to get there?

What if I am lucky and get to a place I thought would be safe, and the locals who are already there don’t like the look of me and shout “Go Back To Where You Came From”?

Step 2 in disaster preparedness: Have a place to go, and failing that be prepared to sit it out where you are. Having a well stocked bunker in the back-yard can have it’s benefits. Just hunker down and wait for it to blow over, whether it a cyclone or civil unrest.

Which is why I have a couple of guns, but I’m not obsessed like a lot of people. I’ll still be walked and living and breeding after the rest on you have picked each other off.

Now now, this isn’t a cock fight. Just talking the practicalities of firearms in a bob. Zombies and charging bull elephants are a very real threat in a post-apocalyptic Australia. The need to crack car engine blocks less so, as the overwhelming majority of them will be inedible stationary targets.

Personally I’ve made sure I live close to raw crops of Soylent Green.

a qualified firearms instructor I know I can regularly hit a Stevian/Deref/VG sized target out to 800m with my .300 WINMAG.

Is that like saying “Craig Lowndes can lap Mount Panorama in my car in 2:20”?

I was told by a waitress the other night:
I’ll just grab that menu off you

Firstly, the menu is not on me. Secondly, it’s not a grab it’s a take.

I’ve grown up here but damn the idiots around who utilise such crap vernacular should read a f***ing book. – Boardwalk Empire reference.

Enough with the guns already. All you really need is a short-barrel pump action shottie (are they still legal?) and for ammo some double ought buck shot, some number 9 bird shot, some deer slugs and you’re ready to handle any situation involving the brain-eating undead.

Absolutely. It’s always the no-nothing wanna-be survivalists that are obsessed with their firepower (compensating for something?). Water, shelter, clothing and medical supplies are just as important but don’t seem to figure in their mindset.
