Is your home prepared to withstand a possible zombie apocalypse? If not, it should be. You never know when they could strike.

Follow these quick and easy steps to fortify your home against a zombie attack:

Step One: Check your door locks

If your home has sturdy, up-to-date locks, it’s less likely to be susceptible to a zombie invasion. If your house is a bit older, it may be time to upgrade your locks, just to be safe.

Step Two: Secure your valuables

Storing your treasures in a box under the bed may not be the wisest place to keep them from falling into the wrong hands. Get creative about where you place those valuables that are most precious to you. Maybe it’s time to invest in a zombie-proof safe?

Step Three: Put up a sign           

If your home currently has a security system, make sure to display the yard sign in a prominent place. Zombies consume a lot of brains, which means they can read your warning. Due to their aversion to high-pitched alarms, they’ll probably move on to the next house.

If you aren’t able to purchase an alarm system, put up a sign anyway. It certainly can’t hurt.

Step Four: Take precautions while you’re away

When heading out of town or leaving your home unattended, make sure to take precautions. Even though the zombies won’t get you, it doesn’t mean they can’t dive into those limited edition Oreos you’ve got stashed away. Be sure to leave on an interior lamp, a TV, or a porch light to make it look as though you’re home.

For ultimate security, you could hang some garlic bulbs on the front door … or maybe that’s to ward off vampires? Either way, better safe than sorry!

Hopefully, these tips will help you feel a little more secure in your home. As the saying goes, if you’re prepared for a zombie apocalypse…you’re prepared for anything.
