The Zombie Preparedness Initiative is a site dedicated to not just surviving the zombie apocalypse, but thriving through it. Gear reviews, real strategy discussions, even recommendations on what to put in your Bug Out Bag, our 15,000 user community is growing more prepared every day.
ZPI was started in 2004 by a group of college students. After having watched Shaun of the Dead, they decided that they would not fall prey to stupidity and rely on luck as the heroes of the show had done; they decided to plan ahead. They quickly devised a number of plans in case the zombies ever showed up and not long after, they began having discussions with people about it. It was at that point that they had decided to make the group more formal, and the Zombie Preparedness Initaitive was formed.
In 2010, the site came under new management. The new Site Admin has worked to bring the website into the 21st century, with a new server and updated site software, a facebook presence, as well as an expanded vision.
Its no longer enough that a small few plan ahead. The Zombie Preparedness Initiative is a global project, aimed at making sure the entire world is ready for the inevitable zombie apocalypse. If you’re prepared for zombies, you’re prepared for anything. Preparedness is a state of mind, a state of self reliance. Preparedness is personal responsibility.
The ZPI staff is available 24/7 to help you with questions, comments, or concerns.
