It’s a fact of life: Bad things happen and for preppers, it’s not a question of if, it’s just a matter of when.
And that’s where Walker B. Heder comes in. With her gruesome nom de guerre, jet black hair, and beguiling good looks it might be easy to write her off as a cos-play cutie, but that would be a serious mistake.
Heder, leader of the TZTF, or Theoretical Zombie Task Force, is more than just a pretty face. She’s an astute observer of society and someone you’ll want to know when the shit hits the fan.
“In recent years it has been easy to spot how unprepared most people, organizations and governments are for the worst. This is simply because they don’t want to imagine it happening,” Heder said. “Hurricane Katrina is a great example of how unprepared and how off guard even the most powerful govermnent in the world can be and was a real eye opener for me.”
While a lot of people in the prepper community are concerned only for themselves and their families, Heder has a vision that is more far-reaching.
“I felt that a group of people would be more likely to survive and that a group of people whose sole intentions are to protect those who are completely lost in ‘The Darkness’ of this new world that they now inhabit is something that the world will need and the idea just evolved from there,” she said.
The end result of that idea was the TZTF, an ever-growing network of preppers and survivalists. The
group has over 100 registered #TZTF Recruits including members on every continent but Antarctica. Heder describes the group as an elite militia contingent that only becomes active in the event of a complete collapse of society whether from zombies or otherwise.
