Well, we made it through the Rapture. It appears no one was summoned away, at least no one I know and apparently no one in the public eye.

The Maya Apocalypse of 2012 is still a whole year away, so that means we should be preparing for the next big event — the walking dead.

Luckily, the federal government isn’t remaining silent on this issue (as it has with both the Rapture and the Mayapocalypse).

Officials at the Centers for Disease Control (I’ve always wondered how something can have more than one center) have released tips on how to prepare for the Zombie Apocalypse. You can find them here —  http://emergency.cdc.gov/socialmedia/zombies_blog.asp.

The Centers (Center) also note they (it) “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).”

It’s good to know that the CDC is being open and upfront with their zombie plans. The military and Homeland Security haven’t done likewise. And it not because they don’t have plans.

They do have plans.

As we all know (at least those who are familiar with zombie literature and film) those plans aren’t public because they involve rounding up civilians who may be infected and using them for vaccination experiments or exterminating them.
