The CDC in America has listed a Zombie Apocalypse as an emergency you should be planning for.
They have listed a set of steps which they feel you should take to plan for this type of emergency. However the following paragraph is from their website, "CDC would conduct an investigation much like any other disease outbreak. CDC would provide technical assistance to cities, states, or international partners dealing with a zombie infestation"
From the numerous Zombie movies which I have watched and all my extensive research into such a situation, there is one thing I know you can count on, and that is that the bureaucracy won't get it right quick enough and you may end up as the living dead yourself.
So what can you do to avoid this gruesome fate and be amongst the survivors of World war Z who have to retake the planet for the living?
There was the recent movie Zombieland, which documented the travels of a group of survivers through the tail end of the apocalypse, which when you think about it and all the rules they talk about and the lessons learned it really acts as a primer for knowledge on survival in this situation.
There are also two books which are required reading for anyone hoping to survive the coming storm...
Diligent study of the above material should guide you and those around you, through this most traumatic of situations and now that the CDC have listed this as a situation to be ready for it should make you wonder "What do they know that I don't?"
Think we are safe down here in little old New Zealand? Think again! The Zombie survival guide lists a known zombie outbreak which has already occurred here. In the book "world war Z" they talk of a situation were a handful of Maoris hold One Tree Hill against a quarter of the population of Auckland which have reanimated as the dead using the traditional Pa as a defensive structure.
Get ready, get thru. Sage advice from our own Ministry of Civil Defense. I hope to see you on the other side of WWZ.
