US-CDC: EPR "What to do in case of Zombie"


Son of Liberty
I thought it was a joke. Maybe it still is. But regardless... I am truly pleased to see that finally.... an official Zombie Preparedness PSA is out courtesy of the US Government's Center for Disease Control;

So what do you need to do before zombies…or hurricanes or pandemics for example, actually happen? First of all, you should have an emergency kit in your house. This includes things like water, food, and other supplies to get you through the first couple of days before you can locate a zombie-free refugee camp (or in the event of a natural disaster, it will buy you some time until you are able to make your way to an evacuation shelter or utility lines are restored). Below are a few items you should include in your kit, for a full list visit the CDC Emergency page.

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. This assistance might include consultation, lab testing and analysis, patient management and care, tracking of contacts, and infection control (including isolation and quarantine). It’s likely that an investigation of this scenario would seek to accomplish several goals: determine the cause of the illness, the source of the infection/virus/toxin, learn how it is transmitted and how readily it is spread, how to break the cycle of transmission and thus prevent further cases, and how patients can best be treated. 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 (I will be volunteering the young nameless disease detectives for the field work).

I'm sure by now you've read between the lines and see the real point of the Zombie Preparedness & Response Guide. Because in all honesty... who really wants to read about how to prepare for a Hurricane or Earthquake? Toss in some Zombies and BAM! you've got traffic!

Fun read... maybe there's something they're not telling us? Hmmmm whats really going down at Reactor #3 in Japan?
