Government centers prepare for "Zombie Apocalypse"

The CDC launched their first zombie preparedness campaign and the idea was so popular that it is spreading to other government agencies. Zombie Awareness Month is only three weeks away and it was a hot topic at the monthly FEMA webinar today. The webinar discussed the success of the CDC campaign and said that it illustrates how pop culture references can help promote disaster preparedness. According to the Federal Emergenct Management Agency nearly 400 emergency management professionals tuned in for today’s broadcast. “Zombie-preparedness messages and activities have proven to be an effective way of engaging new audienced, particularly young people who are not familiar with what to do before, during or after a disaster,” said Danta Randazzo who works for FEMA’s individual and community preparedness division. “It’s also a great way to grab attention and increase interest in general.”
