Survive the Zombie Outbreak (or Other Disasters) with Help from REI

Are you ready to survive a zombie apocalypse?

It’s zombie season at REI, and we can help prepare you for frightening encounters with the horde via our zombie infographic and our in-store zombie preparedness classes. The good news is that our classes are not only a fun way to get ready for zombies, they are even more useful for other disasters such as earthquakes and major storms.

Join us as we make emergency preparedness a treat rather than a chore. To sign up online, go to your local REI store page. Note: Many classes are already full, but you can put your name on the wait list for any last-minute spots that open up. Most classes begin at 7pm, but be sure to check your store's schedule for the start time.
