In the possible occurrence of a zombie apocalypse, certain measures involving shelter, food, weapons, and fitness should be taken to better the chances of survival in such a desperate situation. Throughout the years, movies, television shows, and other miscellaneous hype have heightened a large number of people’s suspicion about the possibility of disease-ridden humans taking over the world. In reality, that atrocity is not exactly far-fetched. With so many vaccines and medicines being mass produced without the sufficient steps taken to test the results, the chance of humans contracting unimaginable side effects is a rational possibility.

Imagine, if you will, a brisk night wind coming fast across a lake carrying a pungent smell, something you can’t quite identify, but is nonetheless familiar enough to send a shiver up your spine. As it hits the trees, they creak out a somber call in the still night air. Or was that groan something more…human? You notice, for the first time, the absence of tires humming on pavement and you wonder if it’s that late, or maybe just a slow night. The soft tapping of your shoes on the sidewalk is the only accompaniment your slow breathing has as you move towards the warmth of your home, holding thoughts of a warm bed in the palm of your hand to keep the chill away. You don’t notice at first, perhaps because the reality of what you’re hearing is
When it comes to a major crisis, especially by world domination from a zombie outbreak, it is essential to know the basics of survival such as materials, protection, and location.

Being prepared never hurt anyone and understanding geography is a great way to prepare for a natural disaster. Julie Bassuk has a great way to help plan for an attack such as a zombie apocalypse. To survive, you must first know the enemy. Ask yourself what patterns are the enemy moving in. Are they moving by major roads, or is the enemy choosing to take back roads and fields? Is the enemy moving toward or away from lights and noise? What areas can and can’t the enemy access? Then, you must retreat to safety. Map out a safe haven and use geographic tools to identify where those safe havens may be. Move away from the things that attract zombies. Be sure to barricade yourself in a place where you could have easy access to natural resources. Also, you must help your friends. Use maps and sketches to identify places where you and your friends can meet
Some people believe that they are also too skilled to be killed by the undead, people believe they would be able to protect themselves if they were to come into contact with a zombie.

The zombie apocalypse may sound extravagant but it may occur just like a tornado or flood. It is best to be over prepared than not
AHHHHhhhhhh........! Imagine being awakened by a soft, distance scream. Wide awake, the world returns to being silent except for a racing heartbeat. Suddenly, a soft resonating moan starts to fill the empty air of the bedroom. Looking out the window, the world is an eerie grey with nothing moving but the occasional garbage blowing in the wind. Suddenly the horizon begins to change as a crowd of people begin to emerge. Watching nervously, the figures get closer and turn into something much more menacing. They are all disease-invested, flesh-rotted, brain-hungry zombies! Where did these undead monsters come from? How do they survive? What

According to zombie movies and books, there are several steps people can take to stay safe when zombies are on the prowl. Legends and other stories describe zombies as dead people who have been brought back to life. Many reasons are very simple and explain that, why zombies have invaded our media. First reason, is the fear of war or lack of safety. Second, the fear or slavery. Last reason, the virus out-of-control.
War. We are always at war, with ourselves, others, with life ,and with death. We are constantly fighting to come out of these wars as victors, but something is always lost. While fighting to survive, and fighting to keep loved ones safe, innocence is thrust into the backseat. Morals, laws, and order is all lost when our brains and bodies kick into survival mode. When fighting zombies there is no chance to second guess or take a break to question one's actions, because it's a life or death situation. So in this war with zombies, we fight for survival, family, and pray our innocence stays intact. The loss of innocence is inevitable in a zombie apocalypse, because when we are fighting to survive, there is no way to save or maintain our innocence.
The terror of death typically consumes people, therefore, they must prepare for anything to happen. Not knowing what to expect can make it difficult to prepare for if the event has yet to happen. People planning to survive the zombie apocalypse must follow the process of gathering weapons, finding the items necessary to survive, and learning to use surrounding items to fight zombies.
The appropriate protection gear is vital in this event. The spread of the disease that caused the apocalypse could possibly be airborne. Therefore, respirators will be very essential. They help filter the oxygen received from any airborne diseases, dust, or toxic fumes. Hazmat suits are similar to respirators but they are more advanced. These suits provide protection from extreme temperatures, as well as, chemicals and nuclear agents. Also, it is vital to have weapons to protect yourself during attacks. An individual must consider that the zombies are drawn to loud noises like gunfire. Weapons, such as, bows and arrows or guns with silencers would suit the situation better. These precautions and equipment will keep your body
(QUAD CITIES – 7, November, 2016) Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse is something that everyone should know how to do and Joe Zombie explains just that in his Ded talk at the I-Wireless Center.
“The monsters that rose from the dead, they are nothing compared to the ones we carry in our hearts” (Brooks 252). Max Brooks, the author of the book World War Z breaks down that there is a possibility for humans to become zombies. In World War Z and Wastelands: The End of the World as We Know It both apocalyptic stories set the setting in extreme and lonely places. The characters in the novels educate themselves to survive the world during an apocalypse. People are constantly running, crying, fighting, or shooting. The authors point out that if we take a closer look there are many possibilities to which an apocalypse could happen, however, the origin of the outbreak is unknown. Zombies are just metaphors used in novels, games,
