That’s right… The Centers For Disease Control And Prevention want to make sure that you are prepared for the inevitable zombie apocalypse! Even in the midst of our nation’s fiscal meltdown, this is the kind of wasteful government program that i can support:
If zombies did start roaming the streets, CDC would conduct an investigation much like any other disease outbreak. CDC would provide technical assistance to cities, states, or international partners dealing with a zombie infestation.
Not only would scientists be working to identify the cause and cure of the zombie outbreak, but CDC and other federal agencies would send medical teams and first responders to help those in affected areas.
The official government website offers information on how the CDC prepares and responds to emergencies of all kinds, how you can prepare and stay safe during an emergency… and they even offer a badge like the one above that you can add to your social networking profile, blog, website, or email signature!
Obviously the point is that planning for a zombie outbreak is much like planning for any other natural disaster. So if you haven’t prepared an emergency kit or sat down with your family to come up with an emergency plan… maybe this little gimmick will save your life one day!
