Proof that the CDC DOES in deed have a sense of humor and that you can have a little fun when teaching disaster preparedness.

For what it's worth, sign me up for the Zombie Response Team!:yeah:

There are all kinds of emergencies out there that we can prepare for. Take a zombie apocalypse for example. That’s right, I said z-o-m-b-i-e a-p-o-c-a-l-y-p-s-e. You may laugh now, but when it happens you’ll be happy you read this, and hey, maybe you’ll even learn a thing or two about how to prepare for a real emergency.

Very cute....There is probably some sad sap out there who believes the Zombie talk :uhoh3: (my apologies to anyone who believe in zombies and/or anyone who considers themselves a 'sad sap' :coollook:)

I hope it does spark some interest in someone who would otherwise not be thinking about disaster training.

This is great. My hubby and youngest spend an inordinate amout of time playing the COD games and kicking Nazi Zombie butt...we joke that we're training the John Connor of the Zombie Apocalypse.

Most useful post I've seen in a long time. We've pretty much got every other kind of disaster already in progress, guess Zombies are next! For those of you who believe in high speed behaviour modification (a.k.a. guns), zombie targets are now available on the web. You can never be too ready!!
