The 12 Tools You Need For Survival [Infographic]

Whether you're concerned about a weather-related disaster or a potential zombie apocalypse, you'll be glad to have all the necessary tools in place when the doo-doo hits the fan. This infographic can help you gather the items you'll need in an emergency.

The graphic comes from Emergency Essentials, which sells emergency gear and kits. Despite the company's obvious interest in selling you these products, most of the items on here are sensible, not unlike a doomsday list we featured previously.

I like that it covers both a mobile 72-hour kit and supplies to gather at home, as well as a binder of important documents.
