Don’t Be a Zombie, Be Prepared with Free Posters from the CDC!

by August 1, 2011 08/1/11

If you haven’t seen the recent Center for Disease Control spoof on how to prepare for the Zombie Apocalypse it’s definitely a good read.

This announcement though is all about the recent posters they announced that not only spread the message about preparing for the Apocalypse, but are absolutely free!

That’s right, simply head on over to this link and tell them where to send yours to! They have two different versions, the one in the image to the right and another that says “Get a Kit, Make a Plan, Be Prepared.”

Both posters are available in either 18″ x 24″ or 24″ x 36″ (flat or folded). We’ve definitely got some coming to grace the walls of ITS HQ too!

What’s in your Zombie Preparedness Kit?

Tip of the hat to Facebook fan Terry.

WOW guys, lighten up. This probably cost about 0.0000001 cents of your "tax dollars." Relax. Obviously you don't see the actual point of this campaign which is to appeal to a wide range of people (especially youth, who don't care about anything except video games and zombies) and get them interested in what the CDC does and how to prepare for an emergency.

I guess money is the bottom line for you people, instead of survival.

These posters are not "free"! Our tax dollars are supporting this nonsense. I am all for disaster prep, but maybe CDC should be focused on more pressing issues like the Dengue Fever carrying Asian Tiger Mosquito and it's spread up and down the East Coast! Or would that be governmental overlap with the USDA? Either way we already have Zombies roaming the halls of Congress and the US Economy is a prime example of the living dead!

I whole-heatedly agree... the purpose is to introduce people to the need of an emergency kit; Be it a simple stash of bottled water and canned food, or more fun items like guns and ammunition.

It served it's primary purpose... promote the importance of an emergency kit, and to say it was a waste of money is easily the most short sighted response possible. How many other CDC campaigns got this much attention and exposure? Would it be totally different if you replaced that "Zombie" with a tornado or flood?

You can lead a horse to water, but spending my tax dollars to entertain/educate a person ate up w/ the dumbass is not a good idea given our current fiscal situation.

Anyhow, we can download the PDF and have kinkos print a banner sized zombie poster, unless this community is waiting for big daddy GOV to give us what we want for "free".
