Reverse 911 is a mass communications system used by government organizations in the United States and Canada to relay vital information to groups of people quickly. For example: in a recent Boston water emergency, Reverse 911 instantly notified Boston-area residents to boil water before drinking.
ZRS Member, Malorie Hannewaldt, suggests employing a similar system to get a jump on the coming zombie plague:
“Imagine a system much like Reverse 911 that uses mass text messages to let aspiring survivors know exactly where and when a zombie outbreak hits. It could save millions of lives!”
Zombie Research Society is looking at the feasibility of creating such a system, including text, gps, and online components. Users could register to receive updates, learn of confirmed safe zones, and connect with other survivors to markedly increase their changes of living through an undead event.
