Well that's an interesting thought, but you mentioned the bread, I hadn't thought of that, there would be also pastries. However, the door would no
doubt be locked, and he wouldn't know how to open it, even if you waved a pastry in the window.
I think if you were certain it had occurred, and it was not just a drunken Friday night, lets say radio stations off the air, and everywhere you look
as you drive around yes, they are all zombies, then forced entry, through a second story window, if you could find a ladder, but then the guard might
just go ape on you, for whatever reason. But you could try to persuade him out the door with pastries. Its all pretty iffy stuff, but then that's
just the start of your problems.
The power will go out in the city, maybe in 4 hours, maybe in 4 days, but fires are already breaking out all over the city and all over the world.
As soon as the power goes out, without heat, all the buildings will freeze inside also, as by Jan 10 here, the temperature is below zero, and there
will be snow, for perhaps 2 weeks on the ground. (short winter in Victoria)
By Jan 10, almost all the zombies will be dead, from exposure, and rotting and spreading disease, even in the air on the wind.
200,000 corpses mostly in homes, and apartments if it happens at night.
People will wake up, and find they are in a house with zombies and flee into the street. If it is 1 out of every hundred, in total, men women and
children of all ages, would only amount 2,500 survivors if they all survive.
Many will not leave, but stay with their loved one, trying to do the impossible, help them get well. They will die.
So you have managed to get the guard out of the armoury, and you have secured some propane heaters to heat the place, and have secured it and have
acquired an ambulance with a siren, and are now patrolling the street looking for survivors. Its 8am the next morning, fires everywhere...
You realize some of the survivors, may already be sick, children, will be helpless. Getting people to the armoury is just the first step, if you
don't evacuate them to some place safe, they will die from disease.
If you put them all in the same arena, they will all get sick from normal colds and flu. So you need to separate them.
Lets hope you have 5 able bodied helpers. Good strong men.
You send them to the RV place, to start bringing RV's there so that people can be housed in RV's. You park them by the docks in
a couple blocks away, a staging ground, for
getting them on boats, and into the gulf islands to safety.
You have maybe 6 weeks, since it is cold enough to preserve the dead, and prevent the real smelly spread of disease everywhere in the city. Remember
flies will be on them, and they will carry disease everywhere.
Am I missing anything?
The armoury is the headquarters of the Canadian Scottish Regiment now, administrative offices I guess, vacant at night, maybe as many as 20 or 30
officers during the day.
Since it is an armoury, there may be a weapon stores, similar to that on the bottom of this page.
I think you would wants some weapons with you if possible.
As a for instance you could maybe mount an
M2 Browning Machine Gun
roof even if you wanted to, to provide cover for the RV's in the cement yard 2 blocks away, or one of these
in case you need to penetrate 1 foot thickness of steel plating or 2 feet thickness of reinforced concrete.
What are the dangers of disease in this situation? Does anyone know?
