"The zombies are coming!" the Homeland Security Department said on Thursday to prepare for a zombie apocalypse, part of a public health campaign to encourage better preparation for genuine disasters and emergencies.
Stock up on living necessities. Water, non-perishable food, and undergarments. You don't know how long the apocalypse could last, so you want to as prepared as possible.
Stock up on weapons. Although guns are efficient at first - knives, bats, and other big hard objects will last longer. How effective is a gun once you've run out of bullets?
Find a group of people. It's much easier to ward off zombies in numbers. It is recommended that you include strong-willed, fit people in your survival group. Also, it is just as important to make sure you are with people you can trust. You don't want to wake up one morning and part of your group, as well as your food, is missing.
Find new ways to keep yourself entertained. Modern day amenities such as electricity or internet service may or may not be working. Boredom may cause depression, so engage in activites such as reading and having sex.
Create a fortress. Or a castle. Or some sort of well barricaded living arrangement.
Have multiple escape routes and back-up plans. Remember Murphy's Law - What can go wrong, will go wrong. Be prepared.
Look for water when being chased. Zombies are not known for their swimming abilities, so jumping in a boat or a raft can be an effective method to elude zombies.
Constantly look for more food sources. Fruits, nuts, plants, farm animals, rats, lizards, dogs, cats and the list goes on. Get creative.
Resort to cannabilism if necessary. Resources are scarce. Do you want to survive or not?
