Disaster Preparedness Planning - Zombie Apocalypse

Now this is the kind of disaster planning that I could really embrace:
Uncle Sam wants YOU to be prepared for a zombie apocalypse.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, known best for stamping out health threats like Ebola and E. coli, is now advising people how to prepare for a zombie invasion.
A blog post by Assistant Surgeon General Ali Khan instructs readers to stock up on food and water, not to mention first aid supplies (“Although you’re a goner if a zombie bites you, you can use these supplies to treat basic cuts and lacerations that you might get during a tornado or hurricane,” the agency says).

From the WSJ Health Blog

Whenever we do this sort of thing, it's always "What if we lose power?" or "What if there is a really heavy snow?"


I say, "What if flesh-eating zombies attack, and they are looking for a side order of social science datasets?"
