|Unless your name is Rick Grimes, you|
shouldn't be running around
alone during a zombie Apocalypse
First and foremost when disaster strikes, whether it’s a hurricane, tsunami, blackout, or zombie apocalypse, there is strength in numbers so find some pals who will have your back when SHTF. “People are the best defense against walkers, or people” said Rick Grimes to a wanderer shortly before she tried to kill him. The unfortunate truth is that some people’s behavior will not improve when SHTF, but you may be able to deter looters, thieves, and bullies by surrounding yourself with others.
Secondly, make sure you have access to some medical supplies. Rick and company finally found a defensible position to hold-up in, had plenty of people to keep the place running, and what happens? Someone gets sick, turns into a zombie, and starts attacking people in their sleep. Similarly, in a disaster, you never know how long you’ll be isolated before help arrives; it’s a good idea to have some kind of water purification system or treatment kit around and a stock of medical supplies. In fact, make sure you’re well stocked on more than just medical supplies; solar chargers, blankets, fire starter, change of clothes, the whole nine yards. You've survived the initial disaster but you aren't out of the woods yet.
make sure you’re well supplied, and keep your cool until help arrives.
