I think this is awesome, using humor to actually teach something. If it can work in the class room why cant it work for a government agency. Is there any scientific or factual evidence that could possibly explain how a zombie apocalypse or why a zombie apocalypse might occur. While I respect their opinions, as they are entitled believe whatever they may want to, scientifically based or not, it is a bit annoying when the CDC posts something that lacks proper support on a logical and scientific field. Zombies dont just eat brains a true master of zombie know it all would know that.
I cant believe there are still folks out there that believe that just because they are zombies they automatically just go for the brain, because really they go for whatever they can sink their teeth into. Why dont you go and get up to date on your zombie info because god knows you reallly need it. Can you imagine going through life without the ability to discern and enjoy all things funny?
What small, sad lives they must lead! I feel sorry for them. They deserve our pity. I loudly applaud your approach! It works! My hat off to you! Is the CDC stupid!? Telling people to worry about having their papers ready to present to the government, but leaving the most important thing out of post-disaster survival? Which would be having a means to defend yourself from looters, government soldiers post martial law, as in hurricane katrina trying to force you to concentrated locations to be under their control, and of course zombies.
If there is any such disaster similar to the one described above, my first thing in the list of my survival kit is my AK. The survival kit above looks like something some girl-scout or gay feminist would have, not a true survivalist.
About the Author
Guns are good in all disasters not only for defense from looters and other enemies, but good for hunting and putting food on the table. I think the reason they left out guns, is because it is typical of the U. Great piece. The heroes are epidemiologists from the CDC—woot!
Give yourselves a hand! What about animals I have five horses and five dogs to think about and I aint never leaving them even if I had to die in the process!

For all of you people complaining about the government spending money on zombies, you are missing the point. Typical bureaucratic bull. Unlike a single event, being a natural disaster, widespread illness, chemical or biological weapons atack, a zombie apocalypse forces people to see emergency preparedness from a more global standpoint.

Kudos to the CDC! People really……. Bush did plenty of that way before this article was written. As a mom with 2 teens that love the zombie culture, have just attended their first zombie walk in Boston and are both playing left for dead right now……. Ive never visited until now and its because my sister told me that someone told her this article was here…and im gonna tell.
Others and my kids have already texted their friends…so how can it be a bed thing?? Look at how many people will take being prepared more seriously. I love it: years is never too late for the US government to learn that humor is an effective communication tool! And to think this is the same organization that banned prairie dogs as pets back in Bravo to the creators of a disaster preparedness guide that will not only be read with enthusiasm, it will be forwarded and shared in the social networks.
You guys do realize the cdc only did this to raise natural disaster awareness. They discovered that after after the word zombie appeared on twitter the audience spiked.

The 13 Most Insidious, Pervasive Lies of the Modern Music Industry…
Pets are an important part of your emergency plan. Make sure to include food and water for your animals when putting together your emergency kit and any additional supplies like medicine or toys. When planning your evacuation route, you should make alternate housing arrangements for your pets in advance, since pet-friendly shelters may not be available during the emergency period.
Identifying pet boarding facilities that are located along your evacuation route and outside of the danger zone are important steps to ensuring your pets will have a safe place to go. When evacuation orders are issued, you should call the boarder to ensure that they have availability. Ill wear a hat or something. Use your common sences. If someone walks up to you, looks like death warmed over, your not going to stick around and find out if they are dead, your going to kill it and run.
Just like a flood. If there is warnings that your house is going to float away, you better get your stuff and leave. CDC is going to find out about any diseases that is going on and help the population. This whole thing is to let people know to be prepared. So just do it. Really people? This is the Most outrageous thing i have ever heard…. I am saying this as i am sucking in air and rolling my eyes around…. I absolutely loved this post! Cause we all know to get away you might have to take some zombies out!
Thanks to CDC for this useful article, although some stupid ppl would just laugh and make fun of it …. Very well written. What a genius way to get people interested! Other government agencies need to take note that this is exactly how you get potentially boring but extremely important information out to the masses. Got your attention, no?
How can we build smart cities of the future?
But please, while the rest of us are being vigilant and preparing for any number of possible emergency situations, you go on and keep complaining about where your tax dollars are going. I think this is a great idea. Although I see tax dollars being spent like Bo said in his post, I however see it being spent in a good way. And to be honest, I did see a bunch on Ninjas hanging out at our local mall last week.
Every one the CDC will try so will other agencies. But no use all would be over run, they would have to leave lavatories and camps, we have hope. But we have no hope on other but are selfs and the people who r with us. I wasent sure about zumbies but yes I allways prepare with food in cans watter, medicine and tools like lamps radios cell phones, and not just me but allway try to tell my family to be in case of an emergency for any kind of dessaster. Was the site hacked? And, if it were a disease, it would be immediately quarantined upon notice by paramedics. I hope whoever wrote this was fired!
I forgot! Even though you had to do it in what others call a silly scenario or a waste of taxpayer money. I thought it was brilliant using a Hollywood Zombie scenario since so many are brainwashed with Hollywood these days.
Just another sad truth about our world today. I should have been a fiction writer huh?
