A semi-serious look at surviving the undead horde

The U.S. government is now acknowledging what many have feared for years: The zombies are coming. Top officials are urging all Americans to prepare for war.

Assistant Surgeon General Rear Adm. Ali Khan, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention?s director of public health preparedness, issued an official warning May 16 on the Public Health Matters blog. It?s not a joke (although maybe it should be).

?When zombies are hungry, they won?t stop until they get food, which means you need to get out of town fast,? Khan wrote in his nationwide alert. ?Plan where you would go and multiple routes you would take ahead of time so that the flesh eaters don?t have a chance.? Meanwhile, military planning is well underway ? some of it serious, some if it humorous, and some of it not quite one or the other.

?In every smoke pit, every circle of Marines in the field, every bored squad in the hooch, the subject of the zombie apocalypse comes up,? wrote former Marine grunt and Iraq veteran Maximilian Uriarte in his blog, Terminal Lance. ?The subject of zombie plans ? from crowbars to escape routes ? is discussed in full detail amongst each other, often for hours at a time.?

Common threads remain: Study your enemy, master your weapons and keep your ears trained for the drums of war.

Because you just never know.


NEW TACTICS
The biggest mistake you can make is underestimating this particular enemy.

Scott Kenemore, author of ?The Art of Zombie Warfare,? argues that zombie preparation has more to do with mindset than the gear you bring to the battle.

First and foremost, he says, you?ve got to keep your head.
 
Gotta know when to hold 'em and know when to fold 'em.

Depending upon the outbreak you'll either want to bug-out and escape the infection zone or, if the outbreak is universal, bug-in and outlast the initial flare-up so that you'll be dealing with dimished threats.

During a zombie outbreak you will deal with police, military, panicked refugees, looters, et al. Depending upon the size, scope and your recognition of all the particulars you might need to run fast or wait out the initial clustering of evacuation/zombie buffet.

The Interstate leading out of Atlanta was crowded with cars filled with corpses (zombie and not) in The Walking Dead for a reason. Too many people clogging the same route at the same time and they all died.
