Do You Believe in Zombies? The CDC Does.

Staff Writer, R. Patrick Chapman
Zombie Apocalypse / Government

The CDC's Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response has had such a great response to their Zombie Apocalypse campaign that the government agency is going to keep marketing this idea. 

Under the Are We Prepared tab, Zombie Preparedness is the main event. 
Wonder why Zombies, Zombie Apocalypse, and Zombie Preparedness continue to live or walk dead on a CDC web site? As it turns out what first began as a tongue in cheek campaign to engage new audiences with preparedness messages has proven to be a very effective platform. We continue to reach and engage a wide variety of audiences on all hazards preparedness via Zombie Preparedness; and as our own director, Dr. Ali Khan, notes, "If you are generally well equipped to deal with a zombie apocalypse you will be prepared for a hurricane, pandemic, earthquake, or terrorist attack." So please log on, get a kit, make a plan, and be prepared!
So then next time you need to discuss being prepared, you can make it fun by employing Zombies to do your work for you.
