In this post self-sufficiency remains an important component of the resilience framework, but how does the rest of the resilience framework hold up in a zombie apocalypse. I agree with the CDC that being prepared for an emergancy is top priorty, but what i dont think anyone relizes is how real this could be. We all must be prepared for natural disaters but i believe the undead walking the earth will be a glorious day for us zombie hunters.

Well done CDC. If I may suggest: 1. Try to avoid crowded areas. Try not to draw attention. Hooray for the MIW men in white! Thanks again CDC. Kudos CDC! A large part of your function is advertising and education to increase the public awareness. This particular advertising scheme was pure genius.

Also for helping me plan to survive the zombies. Helps fend off the zombies, and makes your food tasty! I have means of protection for my companions and I, too. What a great idea! Would have never looked up an article about emergancy preparation had it not been approached this way. Love it and glad to know how to get prepared! Thank you! Think of all the little things, you enjoy and take for granted. There would be roving bands of living thinking humans whom, without the threat of law, would be more than happy to rape and kill you just to take what you have, and to enjoy whatever sick twisted fantasy they cook up on the spot.
I love the idea of linking preparedness with current pop culture and getting the message out through social media. I think that most folks will take the humor in it to prepare their own family plan. This photo may also lead viewers to leap to the conclusion that folks with phobias and delusions are the ones who may take preparedness seriously.
I am also concerned that there may be some negative feedback from the religious community who may give the Agency negative feedback by the linking of Zombies to preparedness. Many religions associtate Zombies to Satanic worship, and this linkage may relfect somewhat badly on the Agency. But you forgot to mention for preparation for a real zombie apocalypse, we have to be armed to the teeth! But its probably not very responsible of the CDC to encourage weaponizing the United States citizens…. Sanitation and Hygiene — Why bother? Clothing and Bedding — Why would you need clothing?
Important Documents — Dont bother with all this stuff, its a zombie apocalypse, the first thing youll be thinking is getting out of there alive, just take whatever you got in your wallet and book it. Hope this helps you all. Now i think that the CDC has gone crazy. If someone is dead that means their body organs stop functioning and the brain controls everything you do and the heart provides the blood for the brain to function correctly and if if the heart stops then the brain stops and can not be made functional again because no blood means that your body cant do anything.
Zombies are pure fiction, the dead cant rise and chase us because the bodies have probably decayed and when you die you DIE and nothing can bring you back. Now that is fact and zombies are fiction. Its common sense. It was a test of the CDC servers, which could well have failed if this had been a real emergency. I would hope that CDC has learned something from this and taken steps to support sudden and massive traffic spikes.
Thanks for reading our blog and posting a comment. We did learn a lot about our blog servers during this campaign, however we would like to note that:. CDC is prepared to handle large volumes of Web traffic that may result in public health emergency. Great Information! The CDC is on the right track with this campaign… It brought a lot of awareness to an important subject… Whoever thought it up should get a raise!!!
The existence of the tact taken in writing this blog proves one thing: The zombie apocolypse is already here, and the brain-dead have already been re-animated at the CDC. Just have to say, the basic preparation that the CDC is giving us, is more than adequate in any fall down of the earth. You need your basic materials just to survive and if say a tsunami hit us, we would be prepared with the necessary supplies to survive.
The CDC is only telling us what we should already know and have set up for when the world is taken over by zombies or by each other. I have been prepared for a zombie outbreak ever since I first watched Shawn of the Dead. Tip 1: As we have learned from zombies in movies, games, and books. Tip 2: Large groups will slow you down and will raise the chances that the disease will infiltrate your group and within days the whole gang will be undead. On the other hand wandering around by yourself in post apocalyptia will leave you vulnerable and lonely, which can be death sentences around the living dead.
So tip 2? And most importantly, make sure that you get along well with each person in the group so that there is no fighting within the group. Keeping yourself clean will help fight off things like flu, the common cold, pink eye, pretty much anything that you could sick from before the zombiepocolypse you can get sick from after the zombiepocolypse. So make sure to brush your teeth, clean your clothes, and wash behind your ears! Tip 4: You never know how long it will be during the zombie outbreak before you can restock supplies such as water, food, ammo, or medicine.
You may need to stock up supplies for as long as months. Running out of food, medicine, ammo, etc… will cripple any chances you have at long term survival in a zombie apocalypse. Well other than the obvious infection the answer is: depression. Depression will lower your immune system, cause stress, and cause you to be tired constantly. I know that it would be hard to not be depressed when your friends and family have been turned into flesh eating zombies, but you need to try your hardest to keep up a light attitude. Those are my tips. So I hope this helps for when the Zombpocolypse hits.
I have been preparing for this day for a long time im glad others are taking it seriously lest our entire civilization be wiped out when they rise. My biggest concern is fresh water, where to find it how to keep it drinkable and how long will the water supply be down if we DO avoid armageddon at the hands of the zombie hordes. What a creatively comical way to address a number of issues — bravo! A little levity does go a long way, and using popular culture to facilitate thinking about preparedness was innovative.
Spoil sports! I have had a zombie invasion readiness kit in my vehicle for awhile now. Being stranded without supplies sucks, zombies or not!!! You have made your agency a joke. How could anyone take this seriously? Maybe you should keep your focus on real life disasters and refrain from commenting on science fiction! The best zombie apocalypse survival guide show is the Walking Dead, and in the seasons last episode, we saw how valiantly the CDC kept up the efforts. Good job, guys. Thank you CDC, the person in charge of this add was thinking outside the box.
It seem as if most government agencies try to avoid this type of thinking. I know your sight must have had a lot of hits, and more people are now thinking of being prepared for some type of disaster. Even if it is not a Zombie attack they might be more perpared for an earthquake or any other type of disaster. Thanks again, Herman Garcia, Captain,U. Forest Service.
I think it wouldnt happen if well humans took care of Earth more often and there was less polution and nucleor weapons out there…Less of the things that shouldnt be here like cars and stuff that arent healthy for the planet we practically poison our own planet every year…People Recycle and start living a Healthy Life Style…Before its too late…I dont want to be Zombie food….
I am surely not too accustomed to this subject matter but I do prefer to check out blogs for layout tips and intriguing topics. You honestly described a matter that I in most cases really do not care a great deal about and manufactured it highly fascinating. I currently bookmarked it for future reference. It really angers me to see people complaining about there money being a waste as it goes to places such as the CDC.
Can you not read between the lines?! This list aids in the survival of any of those things, does it not? Stop being whiney. Let me be the first to say: Bravo! I totally agree; until I saw the word Zombie, I was not interested in how to prepare for an emergency. Although we do have plans in place I say this loosely we would have to scramble around looking for all of our stuff! So once again, I will thank you for having me look at this in a totally different way!
And be better prepared….
Obviously you guys are missing the point. So as someone said before its a way to attract peoples attention and awareness of what to do if a natural disaster happens. The most common ones that CDC mentioned were hurricanes and tornadoes. And about wasting money i dont really know what your talking about any person with any common sense could write this, all it takes is a little of time.
It provides some really helpful information which can also be used for natural disasters. One thing that they forgot to mention was a portable generator or portable propane gas oven, this is very helpful for cooking canned food or disinfecting water when your on the move. The Zombies have asked that we all refrain from using the Z word. It has very negative connotations and feel it hurts there cause. 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. 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. Unfortunately, for sometime, they were so successful that the page crashed and were rendered ineffective. Even thou you joke about this subject be aware of the problems around us.
Study your history my friends. A warning of a Zombie Apocalypse!!!! I will end you as fast as any other zombie! Thanks for the question Sissy. 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? 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? I wonder if I could get a job on the scifi network? Heres another scenario. This creates panic because the tsunamis shut off all electrical power in the world. They cause further devastation because crops die and people start starving. All life in the oceans is wiped out from the poison that was growing on the broken planet and that starts stinking all over the world big time. Causing disease and pestilence. People start looking at each other as food. Thus the Zombie scenario again.
Not as elaborate as my first scenario but another good example of what could happen to make a zombie scenario a reality. Way to go guys. Great PR to restore your tarnished credibility. Other disasters you can, but not zombies. Hollywood is getting ready to start filming World War Z now. I am sure that movie will be a welath of information! Ignore the naysayers. I have a 19 year old son. I could not get him- or his friends- interested in the Earthquake kit until now.
I beleive for starters, everyone should watch Zombieland. It puts out some good useful pointers. Next, the outcome of there actually being a zombie apocalypse is unprobable, sadly i do say so. I wish there could be one…. All of this is just basic emergency survival know-how that the average American can use to protect themselves against REAL emergencies. The use of Zombies is a way to garner attention from the public who would probably ignore this if it were a typical hurricane or earthquake survival guide and it is going to save lives, and taxpayer money, in the end when more people read this and follow these basic steps.
Please stop being so ignorant and just be happy that someone in the government has at least a sense of humor. I have been practicing for a zombie apocolypse, as in routes, safe havens, safety packs, weapons, and advantage points. This might be the only way to get lazy, media-crazed teenagers such as myself to think about being prepared for a disaster.
Should we be part of a co-op farm outside the city in order to afford food?? I felt my intellect declining the more I read. Whats next, a vampire apocolypse?! As if the CDC has nothing better to address than impossible and fictional events. Glad my fellow Americans have their priorities straight, no wonder we are going down the tubes!!!! I am so ready for a zombie attack. I think it is cool other than all your friends and family and possibly even you dying. Most people think it will never happen, but guess what people it may not happen in your life time but it will happen sometime.
What a wonderful application of social marketing to encourage preparedness among individuals who might not have actually considered it prior to the article. Public Health discussions are now taking place among entirely new populations, including youth, gamers, and others. By framing the discussion in a manner that appeals to this group, important information is delivered, understood and acted upon.
Now think it throu all those people that are just doing this because its the only thing they know, i mean come on a zombie apocolypse?? HA mabey in your dreams but if its true then all i can say is dont be foolish cause they are people with souls so every one that you kill spends all eternity in HELL. Great Job CDC and all the people that actually read the article and gave it this much thought.
The last thing anyone wants to do when they are on the run from zombies or a tornado, is leave the furry ones behind. The family survived in the basement, and by the grace of God the pup was back without a scratch the next day. But how aweful is that to know your dog is out there by himself during a tornado? So I will be stocking on the Beneful and along with the ramen noodles, and figuring out a backup plan for where they can stay if the zombie stuff really hits the fan.
I am proud of the CDC for their creativeness in getting out some very useful information in a format which draws people in and keeps their attention… Bravo!!! I love zombie movies and all that stuf, but when it realy happens no one wil be ready becous we neva faced anything like that before. I have been planning my own course of action since I saw Night of the Living Dead years ago and it scared the beejezus out of me. Your list missed good running shoes, cell phone, lighter, keep your vehicle in good working order never less than half a tank of gas ever and make sure to bring the pets!
Last thing we need is zombie Fido or Kitty…. Sorry to say this but all you guys are either gonna die or be completely unprepared when the apocalypse comes. None of you have any idea what you are talking about. Do something more productive with your time and our tax dallors. Great job guys!
Anything creative enough to get people thinking about disaster planning is money well spent. Congratuations CDC for thinking outside the box. Time to dust off the crowbar and stock up on Spam. This is a fun and inventive way to get a new group involved in emergency preparedness. Great idea! Great communications tool. Congratulations on a unique and attention getting campaign.
This is NOT a waste of money!!! Excellent job guys!!! Way to get the word out on being prepared for a disaster. Thanks, my zombie plan and kit is in place and will forward this as well. I am retired from the Army and Current Army Civilian Employee and we have been preparing for the worst since I can remember. You got to be ready for anything, Zombies, Anthrax, terrorist.
As for the the kit that CDC listed, too basic. Spend the money on quality flashlights, radios, medical kits. Get ready now, tomorrow might be too late.
I also have bets on the Aliens will get you before the zombies do! I would suggest chain mail. I could go on as I have thought quite a bit about zombie apocalypses happening but. You know. How about some make-up so you can look like a zombie? Escape to where? We are all going to die anyway. May as well go out happy. When there is no more room in hell, the dead shell walk the earth. Terminator, minus the time travel is way more possible than a Zombie attack, so tell me what the CDC is going to do about that.
Is Unpaid Credit Card Debt Still Valid After Seven Years? - Credit Info Center Blog
I am about to forward the url to all my friends but I think that it great that a government body somewhere on earth is finally starting to take the threat of a zombie invasion seriously because I seriously hate scary movies and a zombie invasion would be the most terrifying thing on the planet! Nice to see that a government organization that has one of the most serious of jobs, can show that their people and have some fun once in a while. And the preparedness kit they describe really is a good emergency preparedness kit in general. Good job! Some scenes involved the CDC. It will happen hopefully not in our life time though.
It even says in the bible that the dead will rise from there graves. So if the CDC is backing it up along with bible it has to be true. The best place to start you preperation is the nearest army surplus store,they will have every thing you need. But if push comes to shove you and your own come first. Your supply list is very good and has helped me with my plan. My plan is to round up about 20 people head to Wal-mart baricade evry entrance with shelfs and anything else heavy. If anyone else has any ideas how do make my plan better pleas let me know.
What a great way to get younger generations to pay attention to the importance of emergency preparedness! Federal funding well spent. Cudos to all involved. This is genius, if you want to educate the under 30 crowd about emergency preparedness this will do it!
I was pretty entertained by this, until I wondered how many tax dollars were wasted in the preparation of this article. I envision a project manager, a task force, dry-erase boards, spreadsheets… awesome use of government time and taxpayer funds! We hope you enjoyed the article and understand the importance of being prepared for any emergency, especially real ones like hurricanes, floods, or tornados. We used existing staff, resources, and communication channels. We are really proud of the number of people we reached on a shoestring budget.
Wow, i love how the CDC trys to down play the fact that tere are Zombies. I am sure they are a bi product of some government testing gone wrong. This is a 48 hour survival kit listed in this article, and contains everything you MUST have to survive 48 hours on foot. Make one in a large backpacking bag and keep it in your garage.
This is absolutely an EPIC post! Definitely sharing. Thinking I am totally insane for even considering a Zombie Apocalypse as a possibility. Hey Man.. I would rather be prepared. And guess who will be calling me once zombies are knocking down their door. Even the CDC thinks so. Thanks so much CDC! For showing the judgemental unbelievers, it is possible for a Zombie Infestation. Listen people. For all of you morons who are complaining that the government is wasting money on this, please read it. This is about natural disasters. They are using the zombie angle to get people reading.
Just substitute bird flu for zombie apocalypse and this is a very good article. I for one have never gone to a CDC page and read anything except travel advisories until this, so it captured my interest. The bird flu of aka Spanish flu killed more people than WWI, so it is still a real danger. Thank you CDC for still looking out for us. Nice little posting, however: Most likely if there was a Zombie outbreak you are looking more towards Night of the living dead, Shaun of the Dead and Last of the living Zombies, they would be slow moving because of muscle deterioration and loss of a lot of mental capacity including movement.
What if there were to be a virus spread genetically that activated in the 10th year or any year of life, so nobody could prepare for it? When was the last time you got so many hits on your blog? Good job CDC. You have got to be kidding me. No one knows when the end of time will be. An all powerful being would never let the little guy know when the final day is coming. Why would He let you prepare. You might as well sit and suffer thinking you are going to be tortured by zombies and waste you money in the resession on your zombie kit because your zombies will be your family, friends and neighbors coming to kill, steal and distroy what you do have after the rapture does come and the anti-christ is the one controlling everything left in the world.
What you eat, do, say, buy. What a crock! I am sure you people just suck! Amazing, just before finding this post I had made a game out of making a survival kit with the family.
The one we had need to be updated and refreshed. The kids loved the post. Thanx for the humor but for the real world common sense. Evacuation in any bio-hazard situation should be immediate.

Ask yourself why they would need an vaccine if there was no virus? And why was the vaccine not mentioned in this article? Well they made the zombie virus and they are working on the vaccine in a top secret lab but the scientists have not been successful yet.
