How will you survive the zombie apocalypse? Okay, we know it’s probably never going to happen— but there’s no harm in having a plan, just in case. Fortune favors the brave— and the prepared. So here’s your checklist for survival in case the hordes of undead sweep across the land someday.
Get a Weapon
You might lean towards guns as the weapon of choice in the zombie apocalypse; but remember that guns run out of ammunition. They are also loud, which can attract more zombies to your location. There’s no harm in packing one; just make sure that you have a nice machete, butcher knife, axe, or spear along as a backup. A stun-gun, taser, crossbow, golf club, or bat works, too.
Gather Some People
Your chances are better when you’re with others. They can help you fight off the zombies when large groups of the undead come after you. The downside is that the larger the group, the more mouths you have to feed. Still, you’re better off with some good fellow fighters at your side. You might not be able to pick and choose who comes with you, but if you get the chance to choose, pick individuals with skills that your team could use. You’ll need people with medical expertise, people with above average intelligence to solve problems, people with mechanical or engineering experience, and people who know how to handle themselves in a fight.
Leave behind the sentimental items, except maybe a photo or two. Instead, fill a gym bag or a sturdy carry-on with water, non-perishable food, and first-aid supplies. If you are carrying a gun, you’ll also need as much ammo as you can find. If the grocery stores are packed with panicked people, find other sources of supplies, like a warehouse, restaurant kitchen, or dollar store. Just remember that looting is still a crime unless you’re well into the apocalypse and the whole world has moved to the self-service system.
Leave the City
Maybe you’re thinking about holing up in a mall or a grocery store, and that may work for a while; but long-term, it’s a bad idea. Instead, strike out for the open country. There will be fewer zombies out in the fields than there are in the heavily populated city. Plus, you’ll have some space to set up a compound and grow your own food.
Find a Place to Wait It Out
In most TV shows and movies that depict the zombie apocalypse, there are scientists in a lab somewhere, working on a cure. If anything remotely resembling a zombie outbreak were to occur, scientists and doctors would immediately begin researching some kind of treatment or inoculation. Take your family or your team out to a sheltered, isolated place in the country, work on gathering more supplies, fortify your base against the undead and the living— and hope for a cure.
