3. As in saying why you need items for some of the more obscure cards. Eg 'They're watching us' where you have to have medicine or tools to stop zombies being added to the grocery store - I don't see the connection.
I don't think there's any official story explanation for the Crisis cards. I don't have any idea why the players would need to come up with Medicine and Tools in order to avert a crisis called "They're Watching Us." It says that if you fail it, three zombies will get added to the library and three to the grocery store. Maybe the survivors are able to rig up some traps using medicine and tools to keep those six zombies at bay.
