Department of Homeland Security Warns Zombies are Coming

I keep thinking that the zombie trend will quietly go away, yet it seems to continue to gain momentum. Now it’s the Department of Homeland Security who is warning of a Zombie Apocalypse, and they want you to be prepared for it.

The agency does not, of course, actually think the zombies are coming. Their tips for preparing for a zombie attack mirror what you’d need in a number of different crises, so they figured they’d have fun with it. This is all coming during National Preparedness Month.

They’re reminding citizens to be prepared for disasters such as a hurricane, earthquake, terrorist attack, or pandemic. Naturally we’d rather not see any of those things happen, but nature and people have a way of making things happen.

A few of the government’s suggestions tracked closely with some of the 33 rules for dealing with zombies popularized in the 2009 movie ‘Zombieland,’ which included ‘always carry a change of underwear’ and ‘when in doubt, know your way out.’

It’s probably going to be a while before people realize zombies won’t really be taking over our streets, but in the meantime we can have fun with shows like The Walking Dead and fun events like the Wichita Falls Zombie Crawl and 5K.
