In the World Disasters Report by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (2014), an emphasis is placed on the importance of local cultural understandings of disaster, risk, and resiliency in order to comprehend how populations prepare for, manage, and respond to adverse events. Similarly, this chapter is enhanced through a case study, which presents an ethnographic profile of “Zombie Squad” (ZS), a group that fits into a more general category of disaster preparation enthusiast called “preppers.” While there is an ongoing discussion of the meaning of resilience and its place in preparing for disasters, the average community member around the world is more concerned with engaging in practices that will help them to survive the event.
