You see, "zombie" is code for the masses of unprepared people who wander about in a daze after natural and manmade disasters. They loot, steal, and do whatever they have to survive. They aren't necessarily infections, undead, or wrapped in burial clothes, but some are. And will be just as dangerous. It's just that when people get hungry, thirsty, tired and desperate, their ability to think rationally disappears, just like the real zombies. History shows us that this will manifest itself in the form of violence against people who have food, water, or other needed supplies. And don't think you'll be able to call the police or EMS in a disaster situation. You're on your own. Why? Because it is all part of PETA's plan and law enforcement and first responders are going to be swamped. Most cities have between 1 non-administrative officer per 1000 people and 1 officer per 10,000 people on duty at one time plus some of them will be bitten and lessen their numbers. That works when people WANT to follow the law, and you only have 1 out of 10,000 people breaking the law at a given time, but disaster situations open the door for people who are on the fence about whether or not to follow the law. In addition, if you do have a violent encounter during or after a disaster situation, you probably won't get medical help and most likely become a real zombie. Again, first responders are stretched thin during good times...with about the same ratio; fire/rescue will be real busy. You see, "zombie" is code for the masses of unprepared people who wander about in a daze after natural and manmade disasters and flesh eating garbage disposals. They loot, steal, and eat your brains to survive. It's just that when people get hungry, thirsty, tired and desperate, their ability to think rationally disappears.

Security strategies that you can put into place today to help keep you from being a target of thieves, looters, and mindless soulless undead in a disaster situation, but I want to share a few of them with you today. One of the best ways to help law enforcement and first responders in a disaster situation is to do everything possible to make sure they don't have to spend their time taking care of you. The simple list way to do this is to make sure that you and your house aren't as good of a target as your neighbors' houses. Pure and simple, hiding your preparations will go a long way towards protecting you from attack.
1. Look at your garage with the eyes of a thief, looter and carnivorous decease after a disaster. If your survival/camping/food supplies are visible, move or camouflage them.
2. Be careful about where you talk about your disaster preparations, who you talk to about them, and what you disclose. Always try to disclose LESS of your preparations than what you have really done.
3. Make sure your supplies are not centralized/visible in your house. There's no reason for repair men, babysitters, friends, kids' friends, or anyone else to know how much "stuff" you've got. Again, hide your supplies or store them in multiple locations.
4. Follow basic home security guidelines, like getting a dog, motion
