The End Must be clear
If you’re prepared, beware of zombies. People who didn’t prepare are most likely to become dangerous and aggressive out of desperation. Therefore stay hidden and live off the grid.
Think of the term the survival of the fittest! Keep your body in good shape and learn how to defend yourself. Government and police departments will be focused on other issues than on your personal security.
Don’t bug in or leave your home straight away at any bad news. Be sure authorities also advice you to. Otherwise you will only use your stock of supplies or important energy. Research for events and catastrophes which are likely to happen in your area. You can almost prepare for every event to happen.
In the end it must be absolutely clear the shit is going to hit the fan.
