Ideally, you would want to be aware of a zombie outbreak before one such fiend is gnawing upon your person. Therefore, it is advisable to monitor headlines and keep a sharp lookout for the following possible warning signs in your area (or indeed any area):
- Bizarre murder cases – e.g. groups of unidentified assailants attacking and murdering individuals with no apparent motive.
- An explosion of missing person reports/unexplained deaths.
- Patients expressing violent, erratic behaviour following treatment with novel vaccines/drugs etc.
- The sudden disappearance/rise in strange behaviour of vagrants (as they would be particularly vulnerable to early zombie attacks and the vanishing of these homeless individuals may be overlooked in certain cases).
- Populated areas exposed to abnormally high-level radiation levels (nuclear power plant leak etc) – and any consequential events.
- Evidence of biological warfare use – i.e. terrorist attacks etc.
