I can see by some of the comments that are negative — some people did not read it before replying. First of all, the CDC is not funded by your tax dollars people but if it was you should be proud. With what is going on in DC these days, it appears that there are already a bunch of Zombies in Congress and the White House…. Please put a disclaimer on this article that this is not true.
My son suffers from paranoia and is extremely disturbed that what is written is actually real. You have got to be kidding me…. This is ridiculous! The CDC has been watching way too many cheesy old horror flicks. All the advice in this article can be applied to ANY diasater situation.
How could they?
Now back to zombies, I would also include some kevlar gloves and even sleeves if you can afford them so you dont have to worry about getting bit on the hand. Really, people? Lighten up.
This is wonderful. Now if only we could find a fun and innovative way to stress the importance of reading comprehension, so that the poor souls who have been upset by this blog post will have some hope of someday getting this joke. Or any joke for that matter. For the negative complainers, the CDC really got their bang for the buck on this twist. It is the same basic disaster preparedness information that the CDC has been making available to the public, but with some tongue in cheek humor added to make it a little more enjoyable and get the public attention.
In trying to get people to read the information available, this zombie twist hit the jackpot. In all seriousness, the preparedness information contained is valid useful information.

You will not be sorry. The emergency preparedness kits should also be useful during the next Rapture scheduled for this October and the cataclysm associated with the end of the Mayan calendar in December C does act fast to something so critical and crazy as something like this i would survive to the fullest. Sanitation is an important factor to keep in mind since public water supplies might not be operational during an extended power outage. Thousands are suffering and this really does not humor me. You may also want to stop asking people for their psychiatric problem in the Oils spill also.
I wrote to Joe Biden and your head of the CDC sent a tepid response to me that there is no danger in the spill and no danger in the dispersants. I think you might want to have a chat with the people because we are slammed with blood levels of people with hexane, benzine, mercury, 2 and 3 Methylpentane above the 95 Quintile, Issocatane and now Cesium 99 this is nothing to be ignored.
People are very ill all over the coast of the Gulf and this is not National News. I guess these workers and humans are delusional like Morgellons patients. This is a horrific lack of oversight and compassion on the part of the CDC and yes while the world is awash in Environmental Armegeddon you put out an article that you think is cute. Bicycles would be essential for getting around fossil fuels would definitely run out in an Apocalypse situation.

Motorcycle jump suits would provide decent armor as they can stay intact after an accident it would be hard for teeth or nails to get through. Brick walls would make a decent defense. Definitely invest in solar panels for electricity main power grids would probably go down. This is an old article. I read it a couple months ago. I have seen this apocalypse coming. They will be here soon. Is it ? I do not know at all. I agree with Dylan. This was a well thought out way to get people prepared for natural disasters.

I know many people walk around care free thinking nothing can happen and everything will be provided by the government, well we seen how that worked out after a few hurricanes. Having worked in law enforcement for over 16 years I can tell you most people are not prepared for even a small disaster and rely on the police and fire to take care of everything. Each citizen should take a little self responsibility and put a kit together with all the items listed by the CDC and Ready.
That way if a family should have to shelter in place until help arrives they can be prepared and sustain some safety and health and not tax the system should help be slow to get there. Zombies are a good example to get everyone prepared for a disaster, it makes the idea of being prepared fun and get your entire family involved.

Thanks CDC for a wonderful way to get people ready for any emergency. But it surely got their attention and likely may save their life one day for making them read something they probably never would have. Thanks for reading and for your blog comment. As we have mentioned previously this blog incurred no additional costs to the government. We used existing staff and resources and feel that it has completed our mission of informing the public about important public health preparedness messages. What a fun, creative way to teach kids and Adults about emergency response kits!
My boys now have taken interest in our 72 hr kit, where it is, and what is in it. Government money well spent! Most important is to teach them how to survive without you and the importance of proper mindset. If you are the Alpha male of your house hold, then most likely you have shielded them, provided for them, and protected them their whole lives. Its time to teach them to protect and provide for themselves.
You are going to have a horrible job of holding society together and preventing anarchy, the least that you can do for yourself is make sure you KNOW that your family is going to be OK, so you can focus on your job and your responsibilities to the greater good. You people that commet on things such as this with negative comments are just pathetic.
Amusing angle that worked as intended! Did our tax dollars go to this tripe?
This all comes from the organization that for years has been at the forefront of taking our 2d amendment rights from us. Zombie defense can only be accomplished through application of accurately directed objects via kinetic energy as a function of the ejection of lead from a metal tube caused by a gaseous explosion. I agree with the saferooms, preferably having air vents, plants, heavy doors and no windows. However, there needs to be a service that allows areas to coordinate saferooms so that there is always a saferoom within a hour walking distance of another saferoom.
Also, large, strategic bridges should be destroyed and ferries be offered in place so that zombies would be better isolated to land masses. Wow, posts! This blog article must have been read by thousands of people after it went viral. Kudos to the genius who dreamed this up! As someone who has been preparing prepping for a long time and has CERT training I think this is great!
Its a wonderful way of getting kids and adults to think about how to protect life and property. They have helped me be ready for all eventualities. Thanks Jack! And thanks to my Dad who raised me with a survival mindset. Ive been reading a lot about this subject lately and i learned a little more from reading this, thanks for the post.
I never made that mistake again, and have quite the emergency preparedness kit, though it does lack a few things mentioned in the article thx, CDC! Put it this way — no one ever died from too much good information!
