The ZSG Code keeps us grounded and guides our members.
1. WE’RE HERE TO BUILD community.
There's nothing more terrifying than being trapped in an alley facing a horde of zombies alone. Or so we imagine. We created this group because we feel the most important thing to have in the zombie apocalypse is a team of people to rely on for help. Come to us with your willingness to work together; it's the only way we'll all survive.
2. WE DON’T WORRY: WE PREPARE.
Although we are planning for the worst, we expect the best. We maintain a positive attitude, no matter what we feel may be coming down the pipe. We focus on being prepared for many different scenarios, not dwelling on one particular possibility.
3. Our collective interests are broad.
Individually, we may all have our theories as to how zombies will get here and what their physiology might be. These theories are essential because they will help us choose which activities to offer. Think zombies will be caused by a nuclear accident? Maybe we'll offer hazmat training. Maybe zombies are unleashed due to a virus? Maybe we'll offer a course examining the effects of pandemics. Convinced zombies are fast runners? Maybe we should jog together twice a week...
4. IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT THE ZOMBIES.
We've read the literature, watched the films and own the manual. The emphasis will be on zombies, but however you think the crash might occur, we feel the skills are transferable. We want to learn tangible skills to fight off the infected, but also how to survive day-to-day and rebuild.
5. WE LOOK TO YOUR STRENGTHS.
Maybe you don't feel like you have any useful skills right now, and so you can't contribute to the team. We disagree. Skills can be taught and developed, but strengths come from within. While building your skill set, we will look to hone, and collectively benefit from, your strengths.
