Is CDC asking for a Zombie Preparedness ?

CDC is the worlds biggest archive for all the know diseases in the world.They have been helping us to find cure for so many of the deadly diseases ,while I was  writing a article on ZIKA Virus ,I had to refer CDC to know the more on ZIKA,while search I Stumbled upon the Zombie article “Zombie preparedness”.And my reaction was sort of “WTF” Is CDC preparing for a WALKING DEAD sort of environment was the 1st question that was raised in my mind or was it just a prank since Zombie has become a popular thing in our recent times. However CDC just answered it

Wonder why Zombies, Zombie Apocalypse, and Zombie Preparedness continue to live or walk dead on a CDC web site? As it turns out what first began as a tongue in cheek campaign to engage new audiences with preparedness messages has proven to be a very effective platform. We continue to reach and engage a wide variety of audiences on all hazards preparedness via Zombie Preparedness.
The post, written by Assistant Surgeon General Ali Khan, instructs readers how to prepare for "flesh-eating zombies" much like how they appeared in Hollywood hits like "Night of the Living Dead" and video games like Resident Evil. Perhaps surprisingly, the same steps you'd take in preparation for an onslaught of ravenous monsters are similar to those suggested in advance of a hurricane or pandemic.
"First of all, you should have an emergency kit in your house," the posting continues. "This includes things like water, food, and other supplies to get you through the first couple of days before you can locate a zombie-free refugee camp (or in the event of a natural disaster, it will buy you some time until you are able to make your way to an evacuation shelter or utility lines are restored)."
Other items to be stashed in such a kit include medications, duct tape, a battery-powered radio, clothes, copies of important documents and first aid supplies.
"Once you've made your emergency kit, you should sit down with your family and come up with an emergency plan," the posting continues. "This includes where you would go and who you would call if zombies started appearing outside your doorstep. You can also implement this plan if there is a flood, earthquake or other emergency."This article was written after concerns of radiation fears following the earthquake and tsunami that rocked Japan in March.
