We may joke around with the variety of zombie based television shows and movies, and drugs that turn people into “kind of zombies,” that the apocalypse is coming, but when Homeland Security starts saying it, maybe it is time we listened…and packed all the essentials.
At Walyou, we like to leave our readers prepared for the Zombie Apocalypse by providing them with all the essential information – the best in zombie proof rides, zombie killing guns, and even providing information on where you can get some real training battling the undead. But that is just us and we want our readership prepared. Never did we think we would get supposed…from the United States Government!
This is what the US government is asking you to prepare for. BRAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIINNNNNNSSSSS!
That’s right folks, just recently, the Department of Homeland Security warned its citizens that they should be prepared for a zombie apocalypse. Now, before you start questioning what kind of drugs the department was on or if the people were involved in some body snatcher plan created by the aliens (which also exist, by the way), this message was actually part of a campaign designed to promote emergency and disaster preparation. Here is the theory behind the idea – if a person is prepared for a zombie attack, they will be prepared for other emergencies as well, including earthquakes, hurricanes, terrorist attacks, and even pandemics.
This campaign by the Department of Homeland Security follows the same ideas that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention followed last year.
Emergency planners are being encouraged to take the threat of zombies kind of seriously to help people prepare for possible disasters. This includes telling people to have on hand items like fresh water, emergency flashlights, non-perishable food, extra medication, and extra clothing. In all honesty, some of the suggestions relate closely to the rules listed in 2009’s “Zombieland” movie, including always knowing your way out and carrying spare underware.
Now, I do not want to be a cynic, a Debbie Downer, or an overall mean person, but doesn’t it seem a bit weird that society is less likely to prepare for a hurricane than they would be a zombie apocalypse? While the zombie apocalypse will happen one of these days, isn’t it best to be prepared for anything at all time.
I mean, that is just me. (Said as I commission building on my zombie-proof house).
