A Zombie Proof House

From The Walking Dead series on AMC to the popular casual game Plants vs. Zombies to the book Pride & Prejudice and Zombies (which is a great read by the way), the centuries old threat of Zombies is making a comeback. And one builder has prepared quite a home to protect those who feel that a zombie takeover may be an impending reality.  Designed by KWK Promes and located outside of Warsaw, Poland, this first zombie proof house isn’t the usual compound where the earth’s sole survivors usually wait out an attack and develop a serum to cure the zombie virus. The home is actually fantastic.
It’s beautifully designed, very livable and sits on a scenic piece of property. The zombie-proofing of it is in the fact that it has only one entrance, which is accessible via drawbridge. Yes, a drawbridge.  The walls are movable and the house has the ability to completely cover all windows with slabs of concrete making the home an impenetrable fortress.  Take a look at all the photos over at All That Is Interesting and I’m sure you’ll be surprised to see just how gorgeous this place is as well as being zombie proof.  I guess you can never make a home too secure.

On a more serious note, at least to some:

Newberg Code Red Service

Sign Up Here

The City of Newberg uses a community alert system, CodeRED®, which allows City officials to send emergency notifications or other information considered important to Newberg and Dundee area residents and businesses.  This is a free service for all Newberg and Dundee residents and businesses.
CodeRED® allows the City of Newberg to telephone all or targeted areas of Newberg and Dundee in an emergency situation that requires immediate action, such as an evacuation, hazardous chemical spill, missing person, drinking water contamination, hostage situation, et cetera. Within minutes of activation, residents are delivered a pre-recorded message describing the situation and, if necessary, provided instructions requiring immediate action on the part of the recipient.
While CodeRED® utilizes land line phone numbers, community members are encouraged to enroll additional cell phone or work phone numbers.
If you would like to receive CodeRED® messages, you may sign up by clicking the below link. Should you at any time desire to be removed from the calling list, you may do so by completing the Opt Out form below.What should I do if I receive a CodeRED®  message?
*  Listen Carefully

What should I do if I don’t receive a message?
