Walking Dead, CDC and Zombies on Emergency Preparedness

Based on the success and exposure from the hit TV show Walking Dead, the CDC is successfully raising awareness of being prepared for anything, even a zombie Apocalypse. If you can be prepared for a zombie onslaught, you can survive any emergency. That’s a great way to ride the wave of zombie popularity to accomplish the goal of civil preparedness in the face of a disaster.

Organizers hoped the theme would attract more volunteers than previous simulations of industrial accidents or train crashes. As an extra treat, they're offering prizes for the most outstanding costume and makeup and the best zombie walk.
