How do you prepare for a zombie attack on your safehouse? Start by thinking of the undead as a raging fire.
In a zombie outbreak, your shelter is only as good as its escape routes. No matter how secure it appears to be, if you can’t get out in a matter of seconds that perfect hideout could quickly turn into the perfect tomb. According to FireSafety.gov, the same holds true in the case of a residential building fire:
“Time is the biggest enemy, and every second counts! In less than 30 seconds a small flame can get completely out of control.”
Once your home defenses are breached, either by the undead or other hostile humans, a “fire” plan should be put in to action. Don’t grab valuables, or try to fight off the threat. Any movement not directly related to escape is a waste of time and energy.
Just another example of how more traditional disaster preparedness techniques can be readily applied to life in the coming zombie plague.
