If you’re not afraid of the impending zombie apocalypse, there’s something wrong with you. A healthy fear and respect for zombies is what will separate the mobile humans from the recently deceased. Any self-respecting zombie fan knows that, and amazingly, so do the Centers for Disease Control. The CDC, an arm of the federal government of the United States, has issued a zombie outbreak preparedness guide in the form of a blog post. Here’s the CDC’s official zombie preparedness guide (and the Google Cache version in case it’s still crowded).
Here’s the thing: the way to prepare for a zombie apocalypse is pretty much the same way you should prepare for any natural disaster, it’s just that the CDC knows that zombies are more fun than tornadoes and whatnot, so they’re using zombies as a very smart way to A) get the information out there and B) get people to pay attention. CDC hurricane preparedness tips? Yawnzilla. CDC zombie preparedness tips? Way more interesting.
I have to admit, while I know this is just a gimmick, it’s also got some very important tips for how to prepare for any disaster and how to take care of yourself in the immediate aftermath of said disaster. From zombies to tornadoes to ice spiders, preparedness is key.
