The CDC blog has a public health preparedness unit on the zombie apocalypse. If you missed the news this week there was some zombie action in Miami. One Miami man publicly feasted on another man’s face, even after being shot by police. You can find out more about that horrific incident here. To learn more about preparing for a zombie apocalypse read after the jump
So far we have heard LSD, cocaine and bath salts as the cause for the attack. Some are leaning in the zombie direction! Regardless of the cause we have some tips via the CDC on how to stay ahead of the game if a zombie apocalypse really does go down.
You should read this and not in light of what happened in Miami (dude eating another dude’s face). The CDC says you should have:
Water (1 gallon per person per day)
Food (stock up on non-perishable items that you eat regularly)
Medications (this includes prescription and non-prescription meds)
Tools and Supplies (utility knife, duct tape, battery powered radio, etc.)
Sanitation and Hygiene (household bleach, soap, towels, etc.)
Clothing and Bedding (a change of clothes for each family member and blankets)
Important documents (copies of your driver’s license, passport, and birth certificate to name a few)
First Aid supplies (although you’re a goner if a zombie bites you, you can use these supplies to treat basic cuts and lacerations that you might get during a tornado or hurricane)
These tips and many more came from the CDC Blog post HERE Check it out, learn something and stay alive when this zombie stuff gets real!
