In the event of the impending doom that some are calling the rapture, but I'd to call the Zombie Apocalypse, there are a few things that you should know. As a public service the Center for Disease Control has published a helpful guide for dealing with my scenario and, as they claim, other natural disaster situations.
They suggest the following survival kit:
- Water (1 gallon per person per day)
- Food (stock up on non-perishable items that you eat regularly)
- Medications (this includes prescription and non-prescription meds)
- Tools and Supplies (utility knife, duct tape, battery powered radio, etc.)
- Sanitation and Hygiene (household bleach, soap, towels, etc.)
- Clothing and Bedding (a change of clothes for each family member and blankets)
- Important documents (copies of your driver’s license, passport, and birth certificate to name a few)
- First Aid supplies (although you’re a goner if a zombie bites you, you can use these supplies to treat basic cuts and lacerations that you might get during a tornado or hurricane)
This is all well and good in the event of your typical natural disaster but I think there are a few things missing and would like to consult Max Brooks Bestseller "The Zombie Survival Guide" for his top 10 lessons for surviving a zombie attack:
- Organize before they rise! (CDC's approach works well)
- They feel no fear, why should you?
- Use you head: cut off theirs.
- Blades don't need reloading.
- Ideal protection = tight clothes, short hair.
- Get up the staircase, then destroy it.
- Get out of the car, get onto the bike.
- Keep moving, keep low, keep quiet, keep alert!
- No place is safe, only safer.
- The zombie may be gone, but the treat lives on.
Good luck. My job here is done.
