The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has posted information on how to prepare in the event of a zombie invasion. Assistant Surgeon General Ali Khan provides valuable information from stocking up on food to first aid supplies to “where you would go and who you would call if zombies started appearing outside your door step.”
The CDC blog also explains: “If zombies did start roaming the streets, CDC would conduct an investigation much like any other disease outbreak, CDC would provide technical assistance to cities, states, or international partners dealing with a zombie infestation. This assistance might include consultation, lab testing and analysis, patient management and care, tracking of contacts, and infection control (including isolation and quarantine).”
Among other things, the CDC also recommends advance planning of the appropriate escape route: ”Plan your evacuation route. When zombies are hungry they won’t stop until they get food (i.e., brains), which means you need to get out of town fast! Plan where you would go and multiple routes you would take ahead of time so that the flesh eaters don’t have a chance! This is also helpful when natural disasters strike and you have to take shelter fast.”
