1: Go to the local supermarket gather all the tinned food I can find and bring it home, (providing I still have a home.) Also I'd take some useful books and manuals back if I could find any, they could come in handy whether for tips on how to survive or just something with which to pass the time. Books on cooking, camping/outdoor survival, utility and maintenance etc would be ideal. A tool box would be an important thing to look for too, chances are it'll come in handy for setting up defenses later among other things..
2: Go to the local police station, if it is abandoned then the first thing I'll do is find a way into the evidence locker and find myself some nice guns for defense. In my country guns are illegal, but gun crime is still high (ironically) so finding a pistol or a rifle in the evidence locker shouldn't be too hard. I'd also take some riot gear, that way if I find myself in a combat situation I have something to rely on. Weapons would also be important for hunting.
3: I'd barricade my home, turn it into a fortress. Gotta keep my castle well defended if I want to survive the apocalypse.
4: Once I have my own survival priorities organised, I'd take a visit down to the local dog shelter and try to find a dog/s that is/are still alive. I'd then take them home and raise them as guard dogs. Once I'm confident enough, I'd search the local area for survivors and start try to start up a village in the local area, we would be a scavenger based society of like minded individuals who contribute to the common good to benefit us as a whole therefore increasing our chances of survival.
5: Finding a reliable water source would also be on the top list, it would be a necessity in order for us to survive and flourish.
6: Once our resources are large enough, we'll expand our borders and turn the village into a town steadily rebuilding society. With the weapons and gear acquired from the police station as well as our increasing numbers, defense shouldn't be too much of a problem. To keep moral up in these hard times it would probably be wise to encourage some kind of culture within this new post-apocalyptic society, this would give us our own identity as a society.
7: Hopefully we would eventually be able to start producing our own materials instead of just relying on scavenging leftovers from the last society. It would be important to find a way to grow our own food and set up some form of agriculture. Once we reach this point we will be self sufficient.
That's all for now.
