I most certainly would NOT trust a few of the people who just happen to be renting a house in our neighborhood.

Distance, isolation and self-sufficiency might be the only way to go in this type of scenario. This is a bad one to deal with as you don't know who's infected or potentially incubating a virus or bacterium. Once it kicks off it is almost too late, that's where a detailed and thorough bug out plan comes in handy. Neighborhood watch be damned at this point, they could be infected! Stand-off defense is really not a good idea at this point as there is greater potential to become a casualty as you are surrounded by infected people and the "miltary/authorities" start rounding people up. Presented with resistance the military or other enforcement type authoritarian groups do not take kindly to people holed up in their houses with weapons, ammo and food who do not wish to comply with relocation to "safe zones".
Doc Torr wrote:The hardest part about the neighborhood watch ad similar ideas, much less the community holdfast idea is that you know nothing about how a person will react to a scenario type until it happens. I work with a lot of Marines, and I've seen hard chargers show cowardice when faced with enemy fire, and I've seen guys that I thought might under-perform that are now hardened, proven vets.
