Discover How to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse

Are you looking for information on how to survive a zombie apocalypse? It is coming, and we all know it. We are all just one mutated virus or government science experiment away from the worst pandemic humanity has ever experienced, a zombie outbreak.

The Center for Disease Control, in the United States, has put out zombie information and awareness material since 2011. A zombie is a reanimated corpse with a taste for living flesh. Even more terrifying is they are nearly impossible to stop.

Fortunately for us, Hollywood has been on top of the problem. Since George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead, movie makers have been working through the problem and different scenarios. The cause can come from nature, the wrath of god, magic, or our own scientific hubris. Regardless, you will need to know how to survive.

Here are our tips for surviving a zombie apocalypse:

Stockpile Food & Water: When the initial outbreak occurs, you may not be able to leave your home for a while. Emergency food and water is important. One can buy emergency food and water kits with a 25-year shelf life.

Medication: Make sure you have your prescriptions filled, and a standard variety of non-prescription medications on hand. Meds will become hard to find after a zombie outbreak.

Tools & Supplies: You will need basic tools and supplies. Ensure you include duct tape, a multi-use knife, crank powered radio and flashlight, and solar chargers.

First Aid Kit: One must be prepared for injuries. Your first aid kit should include adhesive bandages, cleansing wipes, antibiotic ointment, and more. An organized kit makes it easy to find the items you need.

Bug Out Bag: If things really hit the fan, you may not have time to pack. A bug out bag is prepackaged and easy to grab. If needs to include items for starting a fire and purifying water, basic tools, first aid, emergency batteries and solar chargers, and more.

Emergency Plan: Your family members need to know where to find you if you become separated. Identify two meeting locations, and the route you will take if there is an evacuation.

Fitness: Cardio! Being fit increases your chances of survival. You are going to need to run from and fight zombies. Physical fitness is essential for survival.

Learn to Shoot: Take a course to learn how to shoot a gun. Knowing how to use firearms is necessary to defend against the undead and unfriendly scavengers.

Learn to Hunt: Society has fallen, there are no more grocery stores, and your emergency food will only last so long. Bullets will become valuable. Learning to trap and bow hunt will keep your family fed.

Move North: Zombies are not all that bright and don’t know to get out of the cold. In colder climates, the undead move slowly and will eventually freeze solid in the winter. It may not kill them, but it makes it easy for you to kill them.

Cool! These are all survival tips that you need to remember but before heading North I believe you need a good hiding shelter before moving out. One that is probably underground that can survive toxic and radiation annihilation with all the needed stocks below. I saw one episode of survival series where he made a cool underground shelter using old pile buses with all the complete amenities including rooms, water and a lot of stock supplies which could last for 3 years. Cool idea for a survival hideout.

Nice topic! I love movies about zombies and zombie apocalypse so this topic really catches my attention. Now my first advice to survive zombie apocalypse is to try to get yourself anything that you could use as a weapon to protect yourself against zombies. Guns will be good but eventually you’ll run out of bullets. So you should also carry a melee weapon. Next is to secure yourself with basic human needs like food, water, clothes, shelter, medicine etc. You don’t have to stay in a place just to have those resources. Just get as much as you can, whenever… Read more »

Interesting topic and informative tips! I guess another tip is to learn not to panic and always be aware of your surroundings. I always imagine what would it be if zombie apocalypse occur and I’m hoping that I would be ready both physically and mentally when it comes.

If the zombie apocalypse happen then my fighting skills will definitely come out. I won’t let those zombies touch me and my loveones at all cost. I am fan of zombie movies and my most favorite is Resident Evil. I can’t really imagine that chaotic scene in the movie will happen in real life. But of course we need to be prepared and trust our instinct when we have to survive from horrific zombies. That is why I find time to read this informative article.

Well If the Zombie apocalypse happen and you are at the mall, where’s part of the mall is the best temporary hideout? For me is a supermarket because of the food for survival and the gun shop to fight them.
