In the event we actually do have to deal with a zombie apocalypse, or even to a lesser degree a mass outbreak of something that is more of a possibility, the CDC wants you to be prepared.
Thanks for the CDC, and our tax dollars, you no longer have any excuses for not being prepared. It may be a bit tongue in cheek, but the purpose of the information is valid.
They have a zombie blog, comic, and other useful bits of information.
Check out the blog here: http://blogs.cdc.gov/publichealthmatters/2011/05/preparedness-101-zombie-apocalypse/
Or, just jump right into the comic: http://www.cdc.gov/phpr/zombies_novella.htm
Finally, you can get a zombie awareness poster for your workplace.
Don’t forget your face shield and aluminum bat!
