We don't need many things to survive. The main thing is not to make a mistake at the initial stage. All we need is water, food, medicine, and heat. You need to be very clear - if this is the Apocalypse, then all the benefits of civilization can disappear at any time. Water will stop flowing from the tap, there will be no electricity, gas, or heat supply. Accordingly, we fill all the dishes with water and boil it. We audit products. What you need to eat quickly, what you can save as NZ. What will not deteriorate shortly - you need to put in a bag or backpack - in case of an emergency evacuation. There we put medicines (from now on we also include strong alcohol), a couple of bottles of water. Check the Windows and doors, if necessary, strengthen.
After that, we conduct surveillance through the window. How zombies behave. Speed of movement, aggressiveness, etc. in fact, we try to collect as much information about the enemy as possible. What they die from, what sense organs they use, whether they get lost in packs. Well, of course, we remember that now resources are limited and there is a competition for them among the survivors. From now on, everyone is an enemy. Therefore, we observe how the survivors behave. If there are panic and a massacre on the street, then we sit at home and wait for everything to calm down a little. We are not trying to get out of the city, because there will be congestion on the roads caused by numerous accidents. It is also important to get information about how the infection spreads. Most likely it will be tap water, so in no case do not drink it without first boiling.
Observe the blackout. At the same time, we form evacuation items and determine what each family member will bear. We do not collect much, remember that you will most likely have to carry the child in your arms. Fatigue is as much an enemy to you as a zombie. Try to determine what you need while you can. And immediately think about where you can jump off in an emergency and what ways. That is, there should not be such a situation that you rushed to your mother-in-law in her cozy house on the outskirts of the city, on the way ran into a traffic jam or a crowd of zombies and are stupid, thinking how else you can get to the desired point of space. Also, think about ways to escape from the house. Do you live on the 5th floor? Start weaving a rope ladder. Otherwise, when you start to break down the door looters or zombies, you will be trapped.
Why is it so important to readiness for an emergency evacuation? In addition to an attack on a house, a natural disaster may occur, such as a fire. And if you had to leave your home and you have nowhere to go, the priority will be to find a safe place. Family is a burden for you, but also an advantage. Arm yourself, arm your wife. Discuss with her how she will act if an attack is made on her and you are not around, or when you need help in a fight. To avoid a situation where you are being strangled and your wife is standing in a stupor with a knife in her hands.
Try to arm yourself with stabbing and cutting weapons. Forget about the crossbow - it is too large, slow to recharge and ineffective. Although it is effective in the movies, in practice it will become a burden to you. Firearms are too noisy. If you managed to clean up the trunk somewhere, use it only as a last resort when there is no other option. Your weapon is a knife. Effectively a spear that you can make with your own hands from a MOP handle and a knife. Dress warmly - a thick layer of clothing will protect you from bites and most importantly - from the night cold. It's better to have something to take off than nothing to wear.
If you can help someone, help them. Remember that you may need outside help at any time. Give yourself the moral right to rely on it yourself. Be always ready for a sudden change in the situation, do not relax. Do not panic and despair, otherwise they will devour all the resources of the body.
