News: CDC offers tips to prepare for a zombie apocalypse

Case Management Weekly, May 25, 2011

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) wants to ensure that you know what to do if the dead start walking the streets.

Assistant Surgeon General Ali Khan’s recent blog offers tips for preparing for the zombie apocalypse and other, more likely, disasters. He suggests an emergency kit that includes water, food, and other supplies to get you through the first couple of days before you can locate a zombie-free refugee camp. In the event of a natural disaster, it will buy you some time until you can make your way to an evacuation shelter or utilities are restored.

The post was a clever attempt to increase traffic to the CDC site where they could hopefully read some vital preparedness information. It worked. The large number of visitors to the blog actually crashed the website.
