St. Louis, MO – What you would do if you were forced from your home in a hurry with only what you could carry? Where would you go? What would you need to survive?

What if the threat that pushed you out was a massive uprising of the un-dead?

For the past five years the Zombie Squad has been preparing for just that.

A self-described 'elite zombie suppression task force' they're not only ready to defend St. Louis from hordes of walking dead, they also spend a good chunk of time raising awareness about the importance to disaster preparation.

KWMU's Adam Allington takes us behind the scenes.
