The U.S. Homeland Security Department has issued a warning: "The zombies are coming!"
Yes, it's all "tongue in cheek" as the government urged all Americans to prepare for a zombie apocalypse. It is part of a public health campaign to encourage all of us to better prepare for a genuine disaster or emergency. The Homeland Security Department believes that if you are prepared for a zombie attack, you will be prepared for just about anything.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention first launched the first zombie apocalypse campaign last year, and it seems to have done some good.
Among the government's recommendations to prepare for a Zombie attack is to have an emergency evacuation plan for your family, stockpile drinking water, plan for extra medications, a change of clothes (especially underwear) and have emergency supplies like flashlights, batteries and such.
By the way, the CDC did officially issue another statement on Thursday that made it official: Zombies don't actually exist.
"CDC does not know of a virus or condition that would reanimate the dead (or one that would present zombie-like symptoms)," wrote agency spokesman David Daigle in an email to The Huffington Post.
