The US Government is Prepared for the Zombpocalypse? Srsly?

From the CDC
Despite the condescending and dismissive language some of the document sports, I am glad to know that the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention is trying to help people prepare for the coming zombie apocalypse. Sure, the whole point of the document's zombie angle is to get people to take notice of the CDC and how they serve US communities, but that does not detract from the legitimacy of their information.

Among other suggestions, the CDC advocates creating a Go-Bag and determining a Survival Center. The post also gives a brief history of zombies and their different traits, advises the reader to prepare for regionally specific disasters, and suggests compiling a list of emergency contacts.

They rightly note that information about how to survive a zombie apocalypse could come in handy during a tornado, tsunami, or other natural disaster.

If you haven't already, check out the CDC's article "Social Media: Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse." Let us know what they got right, what they missed, and what needs elaboration.
