When the dead rise there will undoubtedly be chaos. Do you know how you'll react in the moment? Luckily, there's a lot you can do to prepare now. You might already have most of the material lying around the house...
When it comes to the zombie apocalypse, mainstream advice says to stay out in the open and to keep moving. This is not always possible and certainly not always the wisest decision.
Cornell University conducted a study into the zombie apocalypse. They found the best place to head during the zombie apocalypse is the Rocky Mountains.
But what if you can’t make it to all the way to Montana (Glacier National Park)? Are you doomed to keep wandering and hoping? Is there any real chance of survival?
Based on known decay rates, an outbreak is likely to subside in in a few weeks to months. (Depending on the climate where you live).
The initial wave would last just a few weeks and then it will take some time for those infected after the outbreak to meet their slow, disgusting demise.
You can expect cities to fall extremely fast. Less populated areas will likely hold out a few months longer.
If you live in one of the less populated areas you might be better off staying put. Fortify your home and hunker down until it’s over. As long as you can store enough provisions and your defenses hold you will be able to last.
The best scenario would be to zombie proof when having your home built. But this isn’t an option for those of us not currently buying a house. We have to do the best we can fortifying what we already have.
Luckily, you can do most of this prep yourself.
The ideal solution would be to beef up doors and windows with 2x4's and plywood. But in a pinch you can use splintered furniture, branches or anything you find laying around.
Be sure to have a plan ready, provisions stocked and maintain a positive attitude. Following this advice will ensure you live to fight another day!
Understanding the type of zombie you are facing is of the utmost importance in your preparations. Some defenses may be unnecessary for certain types of zombies. While forgetting others can all but ensure your demise!
