I think anyone that slates this idea is being short-sighted. They are NOT preparing themselves for a zombie apocolypse..... they are using zombies as a way to educate younger generations (who think Facebook crashing for more than 30 mins as an end of the world scenario) about being prepared for disaster scenarios, planning, emergency plans etc. When you look at a Zombie film, if you strip the undead from the equation you are left with a society that collapses with food, power, water, policing and more all disappearing and this is the same sort of thing that could happen in a hurricane, tsunami, earthquake, power supply disruptions over several weeks, riots, virus epidemics, etc. All they are doing is try to get people thinking more about what to do in an emergency rather than just tweeting news stations complaining the government have made no plans for the current disaster, and using zombies as a way to add a little fun and excitement to what is still a fairly general plan. If alien invasions were popular then they would use that for the same situation.... if Day of the Triffids became the next big thing the action plan and emergency planning would still be very similar. It is just education but trying to teach it to students (the younger public) in a way that engages them to learn it!

I would surround my house with outward facing treadmills hooked to a generator. Not only would zombies not be a bad thing, they could be a source of clean energy...

Zombies are possible, just very unlikely. Rabies and other diseases would just need to mutate.

Unless you mean the living dead, then that is different, but that isn't what zombie means.

If the only way to educate the younger generation is to use zombies or other such nonsense then why bother ? Let them rot in their ignorance .

Why didn't they mention bullets?  If we are going to be attacked by zombies I think you would need plenty of ammo.

Because it's not about zombie preparedness, that's just to get attention, because zombies are so popular right now. But you never know... lol

As far as being the living dead, I don't believe zombies are possible either, but that's beside the point. Did you read the post, or just the title of the thread?

What exactly is your issue with the article itself? It doesn't present any false information. What it actually states is the fact that the U.S. Depeartment of Homeland Security and the CDC are using a "Zombie Pandemic" theme as means of encouraging Americans to prepare themselves for real life disasters that may (some can argue will) occurr.

It's a rather bizarre approach in my opinion.

Oh for pity's sake, how silly can things get? Don't bother to answer, obviously silly as hell. Worry about the real stuff that can kill you and leave the zombies to video games and TV shows.

Are you addressing that statement towards zombie fans / believers, or more towards the creators of the ad campaign?

With that being the case, does it not seem rather bizarre that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the CDC are the ones running this ad campaign about a "Zombie Pandemic" as a means of attempting to get people to prepare themselves for the event of a real disaster / pandemic occurring?

(Unless of course this article is false and the ad campaign is not real. As best I can tell at the moment, though, that is not the case)

If anyone reads in between the line's then they probably would see that the government are preparing us all for an outbreak of some kind, possibly induced by themselve's or another country (chemical warfare, viruses etc)

I wish it doesn't occur, but it's all too real a possibility. It's not as if governments haven't done such things on smaller scales in the past.

It also ties into the whole "control the people with fear" tactic that has been in place for so long now; getting people to willingly han over their freedoms in belief that it's being done for their own safety.

For anyone that may be doubting if this ad campaign is legit:



Zombie Preparedness

Wonder why Zombies, Zombie Apocalypse, and Zombie Preparedness continue to live or walk dead on a CDC web site? As it turns out what first began as a tongue in cheek campaign to engage new audiences with preparedness messages has proven to be a very effective platform. We continue to reach and engage a wide variety of audiences on all hazards preparedness via Zombie Preparedness; and as our own director, Dr. Ali Khan, notes, "If you are generally well equipped to deal with a zombie apocalypse you will be prepared for a hurricane, pandemic, earthquake, or terrorist attack." So please log on, get a kit, make a plan, and be prepared!
