Yes, the CDC has information on how to prepare for a Zombie Apocalypse!  They are willing to send medical teams and first responders (using tax dollars of course!) if your town is striken by a brain eating zombie invasion.

Kudos to the CDC for a brilliant advertising campaign!  Can you think of a better way to get the younger generation interested in what the CDC does?


;-D

Hopefully, it will teach people who normally wouldn't bother to visit an emergency preparedness site what they should do if a real emergency happened.

"War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives." -- General Smedley Butler: War is a Racket (1935)

"War is mankind's most tragic and stupid folly; to seek or advise its deliberate provocation is a black crime against all men. Though you follow the trade of the warrior, you do so in the spirit of Washington — not of Genghis Khan. For Americans, only threat to our way of life justifies resort to conflict." - General of the Army Dwight D. Eisenhower: Graduation Exercises at the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York, USA at 3 June 1947

I thought it was pretty clever, too.  I need to get my bag together.  I shouldn't have any excuses cuz I got roped into being on the hospital disaster committee. :)

Don't knock the Zombie Apocalypse!  People will not put in the time to prepare for earthquakes, floods, pandemics or any other serious natural disaster, but they will game out scenarios about surviving the Zombie Apocalypse.  Well, good.


Anything that gets people thinking about what to do in a survival situation, and learning to recognize what they have on hand, or will soon have on hand because they want to say they are ready for the Zombies, will leave them prepared for the bad things that do invevitably come up. We know it won't be a Zombie Apocalypse, but we also suspect that the survival of many from the next natural disaster will be owed to thinking about Zombies.

The CDC have used zombie outbreaks for years as a planning tool. It's just an amusing way to work out infection vectors for a single-outbreak, high-contagion disease. The British (and American, IIRC) military uses zomebie plague to plan for certain kinds of emergency for much the same reason.


I have everything listed on the site in either my office or my kitchen.

He who oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God. ~ Proverbs 14:31

Fiat justitia, ruat caelum

This thread was moved from the Hot Topics zone. It might not belong here. But since we don't have a 'totally ludicrous, ridiculous, absurd, but possibly funny forum' on Beliefnet, I decided to stick this here.

I have to add my kudos. When I first heard it I was aghast (perhaps aghoul). After further investigation, I had to chuckle. I agree it's a clever use of the absurd to communicate important info. That's two good things from the Obama administration.

How strangely will the Tools of a Tyrant pervert the plain Meaning of Words!
