September Disaster in Place: Zombie Apocalypse!
Hello and happy National Preparedness Month!
This month’s scenario is a zombie apocalypse.
If zombies were to emerge from the undead right now, would you be ready? Could you defend yourself using what is right beside you? Do you and your family members have a meeting place? Supplies to keep you alive and safe for at least three days until some of this can be sorted out? What are your emergency exits if a zombie comes walking through the door? Do you have a written response plan? (All assumptions are based on slow, rather than fast moving, zombies).
For information about zombies and how to prepare for this catastrophic apocalypse, visit the CDC’s excellent resource: http://blogs.cdc.gov/publichealthmatters/2011/05/preparedness-101-zombie-apocalypse/
