Are You Prepared for the Zombie Apocalypse?

Does this sound a bit crazy? Think about it, if the best place to hide in your home during a zombie apocalypse is, say, the cellar, then that’s probably the best spot for you to hide in case of a tornado, also. Are you running from thousands of the undead? Which would be the best way out of town, how would you go if perhaps cars were out of the question, and where would you go? You are going to need at least a few supplies, right? So what would you pack in your backpack? Extra glasses, medication, flashlights, batteries? Getting your significant other and family members to start talking and planning for a zombie attack can get them to talk about vulnerabilities and other problems they might not want to talk about for more boring scenarios like earthquakes.

There are some people who are simply too afraid to think about what they might do in the event of a disaster. These types of thoughts paralyze them with fear about how they would cope and what if they made the wrong decision? They might feel completely incapable of dealing with a hurricane or earthquake, but laughingly making plans to avoid hordes of the walking dead? Well, that’s something they can probably do.

You don’t have to go all out zombie preparedness, though. Don’t think about trying to fit a chainsaw or crowbar in your backpack! However a first aid kit, bottled water, batteries, flashlights, a battery powered or crank radio, and some extra food would go a long way in keeping you ready for an earthquake or a zombie mob.

You might also want to think about a family plan, you know, in case those zombies come while everyone is at work or school. Make a plan about where you will meet up, and how they might get there to avoid as many of the walking dead as possible.

An Ebola preparedness plan might be too far out there, it probably will never happen. But a zombie attack on the mid-west states and a Godzilla attack on the west coast, now those are things we should really all take into consideration!
