I had a good idea the other day. As I'm sure we all know, and pafoa have those gun rights fliers for giving to those whose eyes have not been opened. Who else here is thinking of a Zombie pamphlet that we could whip up. How badass would it be to have a get together for the sake of educating the populace about Zombies, we could hand out a ton of those fliers. Give me your opinions on the flier or a getogether with signs and zrt shirts. I would be willing to brain storm with somebody to think up what to put on there.
IIRC, MjFlether and Ronnie were working on getting together information for both a pamphlet and a front page website for the forum.
Getting the site together is kind of in a holding pattern right now. I started a thread or two in the support forum asking members for ideas on site content and got next to no responses so apparently the members don't want to have an actual site. That pretty much kills any ideas for pamphlets since they'd be a "heres some basics, for more info see" deal.

Now if the members actually stepped up and said "this should be in the FAQ... There should be a page of...." etc etc we could move forward. We're supposed to be a team, but how the hell are we ever gonna work together on major issues if we can't even figure out how to decorate our online home?
Well we need to get a core membership down, We need someone to organize us so to speak, I cannot donate that required time, due to 80 hr work weeks... But i post when i can. And chime in when i can. As for wanting us to be a team, Id love that. For any reason something happens, i would like to know someone has my back you know...
Post some ideas in the support and suggestions forum. If theres a particular page you think the site should have say so. If theres an question/answer you want to see in the FAQ post it in the FAQ thread. Others can and will handle getting it put up on the site, we just need to know what people want to see here and get some ideas for the content.
Moved to Support & Suggestions.
Well, one good way the begin setting up our information delivery is to define a mission statement for PAZRT. That way, we have a better guideline for what this site is for, other than 'anything and everything zombie'.

For example, heres Zombie Squad's;
Quote:Zombie Squad is an elite zombie suppression task force ready to defend your neighborhood from the shambling hordes of the walking dead. We provide trained, motivated, skilled zombie extermination professionals and zombie survival consultants. Our people and our training are the best in the industry.

When the zombie removal business is slow we focus our efforts towards educating ourselves and our community about the importance of disaster preparation.

To satisfy this goal we host disaster relief charity fundraisers, disaster preparation seminars and volunteer our time towards emergency response agencies.

Our goal is to educate the public about the importance of personal preparedness and self reliance, to increase its readiness to respond to disasters such as Earthquakes, Floods, Terrorism or Zombie Outbreaks. We want to make sure you are prepared for any crisis situation that might come along in your daily life which may include having your face eaten by the formerly deceased.

While I'm not looking to copy them, having a similar statement fitting the ideas and purpose of the ZRT would be a great start for us.
You mean something like this:

Quote:Welcome to the headquarters of the Pennsylvania Zombie Response Team.

We’re an elite force of dedicated to the protection of the human race against the looming threat of the Zombie Apocalypse. Whether they are reanimated dead or virally invected living, we’re prepared to hold the line between them and the rest of the human race as civilization is rebuilt. When the time comes, we’ll answer the call to arms to ensure that humanity continues to thrive.

FireGS and I were working on it one day. Been waiting for people to actually post some ideas to get a better direction on it. I was thinking about also adding in something like:

Quote:Until then, we discuss preparations and plans for dealing with more common disaster situations such as flood, earthquake, blizard, ice storms, and other natural disasters that can affect us all at any time. Everything from simply what types and quantities of supplies to have to preparing your home to be self sufficient if its knocked off the grid and how to plan the best emergency evacuation routes.

Yeah the format is basically the same as theirs, but its a good format. I don't think they'll mind if we follow their outline with our own words, especially if we have a links page with them prominently posted on it.

Wow, totally missed that. Looks nice.

Especially since they pulled the PA chapter several months ago. So no turf wars (for now).
So, getting back to the topic at hand; informational fliers.

Noramal tri-fold flier gives us 6 panels of information to work with.

Front- PAZRT logo and slogan (One in the head, make sure they're dead!/Ready. Set. Survive./etc). Nice catchy representative graphic, and prominent web address.

Inside 1- Mission Statement, and or other information on who we are/what we do.
Inside 2- 'Tips and Tricks' or 'FAQs' of zombie survival.
Inside 3- List of essential items for a personal bug out bag.
Inside 4- List of essential home emergency stockpile items.
Back- Sector Map, web address, and slogan.

Sound about right?
