Are you ready to defend yourself from crazy mindless flesh eating zombies? Do you know how to survive a zombie attack? Have you prepared yourself and your family to survive the coming Zombie Apocalypse?

In the CDC’s latest attempt to scare the hell out of people, they’re now posting fictional blogs on surviving the “zombie apocalypse.”

The CDC article ,written by Assistant Surgeon General Ali Khan, says, “There are all kinds of emergencies out there that we can prepare for, take a zombie apocalypse for example. That’s right, I said z-o-m-b-i-e a-p-o-c-a-l-y-p-s-e. You may laugh now, but when it happens you’ll be happy you read this, and hey, maybe you’ll even learn a thing or two about how to prepare for a real emergency.”

mask to protect from zombie virusWhile I have to admit, the whole zombie apocalypse thing is a pretty cool idea, should the CDC be the ones delivering it?

The CDC says that the article is “tongue-in-cheek” and part of a larger campaign to help Americans prepare for disasters. While I’m all for helping people prepare for coming disasters, I’m not sure what to make of the CDC campaign.

A spokesman for the CDC said that the campaign is a direct result of people calling them with concerns over the radiation problems in Japan.

REALLY?

So instead of taking these people’s concerns seriously, they instead decided to make fun of them and put together a half baked plan for emergency preparedness. So why do I say the plan is half baked?

Well to be fair to the CDC, there are a couple good survival supplies mentioned in the article which can get you started.   That I applaud them for since most of Americans are not even prepared for a temporary power outage let alone a zombie apocalypse. The article does mention a couple of the basics, such as water ( a gallon a day per person), food, first aid supplies, and some basic tools….. but what’s missing from the article is what could get you killed.

zombie killing gunWhere the hell are the weapons?

This is the zombie apocalypse right?

Yea, I know the article was rhetorical and meant to get people thinking about emergency preparedness, but I say again, WHERE THE HELL ARE THE WEAPONS?

Zombie Apocalypse or not, failing to mention the benefits of carrying a knife and a gun is just plain stupid. Yes, they do mention carrying a utility knife, but come on what the hell is a utility knife going to do for you? When was the last time you seen someone build a shelter with a utility knife?

If the CDC really wanted to help people prepare for impending doom, they really went wrong by not mentioning the importance of weapons in a survival situation. From protecting your family, to hunting for your next meal, having a knife and a gun is essential to your survival.

So when the CDC zombies are out there trying to build a shelter, make traps, or hunt for their next meal, I hope that utility knife comes in handy. But when they start to starve to death or get attacked by flesh eating zombies they better not come looking for me.

I’m going to living in luxury with a full belly full of food thanks to my rifle, my knives and my zombie killing shotgun.

    I’m not saying that a zombie invasion is on its way. but i do belive some type of distaster is forth coming in the US. I’m suprised about how much Ive been reading articles about this kind of stuff guess we better be prepared for what ever.

    ps this website is my homepage Love it !!

  2. Kloathis says:

    Well of course they aren’t gonna tell you about the benefits of being armed because then it will be that much more difficult to herd the ‘sheep’ into the FEMA camps!!!

    STAY ARMED AMERICA, when they come for your guns give it to them one round at a time!!! BTW Love the site!!

    • STUART says:

      YO U ARE RIGHT BE PREPERED

  3. Joe says:

    The fact that the CDC is getting on board makes me smile/laugh.

    In a real Zombie Apocalypse, the living dead will most likely be those who haven’t prepared, those who are walking around looking to take what they can from others or die trying.

    As I mentioned in a post over on my site a few weeks ago, the zombies may be your unprepared neighbors, the alcoholic/drug addict around the corner, or those who are just barely living within the confines of civility now.

    Frightening stuff, but that’s all the more reason to prepare for it.

    • helen says:

      So what you are saying is not only do we have to worry about Zombies, but we have to worry about DIRTY Zombies that may have HIV or Pee their pants…GROSS

  4. EcoGoth says:

    OMG!
    At least i know that i am not the only one slightly concerned by the fact that they tell us to prepare for ZOMBIES!
    I mean if your going to be retorical. say bigfoot
    Seriously zombie movies are GREAT, but when you think about the concept its kinda scary.
    Expecially INFECTED zombies, which considering our goverments lack of consideration for conciquence. woudl be what happened.
    Infected zombies, mutate, can run. Its a genuanely scary idea.

    I mean realy these government people need to THINK!
    and i agree WTF is up with not mentioning guns!

    Cdc says, *mouchs them* if you get attacked by zombies just yell im prepared and maybe they will go away!
    WTF weapons america WEAPONS!

    • Dru says:

      im not scared… i dont have much to live for.. im going into the army when i turn 18. i also have been diagnosed with depression.. so a little destroying of evil should be good for me.

  5. ztar says:

    really zombies? if they became real we could anilate them with all the explosives that are handy,guns,firecrackers oil,even flower and dry coffee creamer are explosive soooo im not worried, we anileted whole counties so destroying zombies if it happens is a what ever kinda deal;i will protect myself before i let anything try to kill me.

    • Chocomilko says:

      Apparently you need to read “World War Z”

      • Stephanie says:

        Definitely.

  6. church says:

    people wake up for real open your eyes and look around there is enough chemical and bacteria at the CDC in Atlanta GA.to wipe out the human spices twice over I’m talking ALL humans…survival of biologic is the end game …people please….ZOMBIES hooo DOOO….

  7. walker says:

    you both are right, if it did happen we would win yet we have so many chemicals we could die

  8. ztar says:

    or the chemical could turn people into zombies

    • FLUFFOO says:

      i agree i mean come on im sure the governments will result to chemicle soon enough and all those different chemicles mixed into one big explosion no telling what the side affects will be with the survivors

  9. Spencer@SW|Gerber Knives says:

    I wouldn’t be afraid of a situation like this. If you’ve read into anything dealing with citizens owning weapons, you might have seen that just 4 of our 50 states in the US have more registered hunters and gun owners than any other country has soldiers! It’s as if we have a gun behind every blade of grass.

    I think we’re good.

  10. Salvador says:

    I really dont think north america would be in any danger, (north america meaning Mexico, U.S.A and Canada, put together i think we all have more guns than the European Union, plus that’s when the latinos will shine through everywhere!!

  11. Denae says:

    By ZOMBIES they mean the people who are not prepared what so ever and are willing to kill you and yoiur family to take what you have! Its either you or them WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO?

  12. church says:

    ZOMBIES ….OK…..I’m going to move to either Canada or Los Angeles…if I gotta get bitten i want it to either be by a bear or a blonde…..

    • helen says:

      So you are Bisexual…

  13. Bill says:

    North America is not Mexico, Survival will depend on where you are at and who and there mind set is around you. Like minded people who work together to protect and grow food and clean water are going to be ahead. If things get bad enough other groups that survive will be harder core, the longer the harder, Groups working to protect each other stand a better chance, also with skills, some one knowing how and having a forge to make metal instruments will be a god sent, some with some one having a well and pump for pure water with out treatment, a group harvesting food, as in large gardens or fields, grain, livestock, large scale hunting will wipe out game in a hurry, surprising just how efficient chickens can be, eggs and meat. So if a group survives there will be other groups that have survived coming in and taking from others and there you have your zombies. A 22 is better then nothing, easy to carry a lot of shells for. will kill all North American game with a well placed round, A high power will do so from father out and with more certainty. Shotguns for moving targets, work well for any zombies too with the right shot load or close enough, #9 shot will make a big hole from several yards away. so skills from the old world are important and so are there tools, any one know how to make leather from animal hides, grow food, take care of live stock? build things like barrels or wheels, maybe produce electricity for a electric welder or know how to use a coal forge to work iron? 12 volt lighting for a home, using a old alternator and battery powered by wind, running water, a bicycle? food drying or smoking, canning, all helps in quality of life, those who can and do store the right how to books will have a place. and for how long, how long before the electric power comes back on, the sanitary running water, sewer? City’s will not be the place for long term and the country cant handle for masses unless very will organized and prepared, how do you cut and thrash grain for a number of people or even your family? best look at methods and tools used in the 1850 to 1920 time from for a bit. hope all comes back soon but with a EMP look then to the 1850′s and learn how they lived, you may have to weave your own cloth, make your own cloths, shoes, make your own leather, raise bees, chickens, beef or goats, maybe be lucky enough to raise a few horses maybe even work horses, or prepare and be able to produce your own fuel for that tractor or truck. Hydrogen works and if you set up now will work, Propane set ups for tractor or truck and change the jet. and If you have it there will be some lazy ass who will come and try to take it by force. or some ass who comes along and wants to be part of it but wants to be boss. either way you lose or they do. decide! know those what will stab you in the back. Know those who will bring in others to help them out who will over whelm your ability to produce food or water and know how to deal with it. Purely breeders and eaters are a problem, Problems must be eliminated! Even the area around you must be protected, or your hunting areas will be wiped out, starving with hands out once fed will and strengthened will come to take what you have later. always remember that. Never trust a Mexican, they never have and never will be able to build any thing on there own, they have to come and illegally invade this country to gain a foot up at our expense and loss of jobs Our social systems to care for there over breeding and medical care and food and housing now and all else, this will not change! Remember it. As proven in the 1850′s there is where a knife in the back is most watched for, again remember this!

  14. ztar says:

    bill,you mean illegal mexicans right, i know plenty of hard working mexicans who have never had the goverment hold their hand,its just a misconception that all mexicans are lazy,theyre not,alot of them worked super hard to get were they are now.

  15. Joe Burge says:

    Biological Weapons
    As a scientist, and a practical-minded person, I can tell you that several “persons” are sitting around with a freezer full of nasty little germs just waiting for their moment. And you know the military has been playing war-games with biological scenarios for decades. If anything precipitous should happen, and human survival is in question, there are about 5.5 billion too many humans, and a bug is a much easier way to eliminate them.
    There is not going to be any conventional warfare with guns and bullets. Someone is going to un-cork a flask and wipe out more people than has ever been dreamed of before.
    It may not be a true “zombie” scenario, more like Stephen Kings ‘The Stand’, except someone will release the bug intentionally, and a lot of people will die. the only question will be who will survive and will there be enough infrastructure for them to survive?

    • ZaK says:

      Joe I totally agree… there are some evil minds out there and they are just plotting and waiting.. I hate to name names but a certen (class) of people would love nothing more then to watch you starve to death as long
      as there pockets and bellies are full. the people who are going to suffer the worst are the hard working Americans that still believe in the constitution but are to hard headed to listen to the truth… there will be a mass disaster and our own “brothers” are going to be the blame. depopulation is the name of the game for these guys and the wheels are already in motion… fuck 12/21/12 look around you..its already over.

  16. church says:

    Mr. bill is correct you all had better listen to him.!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. N says:

    OMG! Joe, is right. You may need a gun to shoot game, if you survive. But it’s unlikely many will. The Zombie virus scenario pushes the concept to the absurd, of course. However, the death rate will be real, planned and intentional.

  18. Rosie Parish says:

    I believe what everyone is saying. There is a coming danger.
    So take my advice and turn your lives over to Jesus Christ and live for him. Because the true Christians will be taken out of this sick world before all this disasters comes to the earth.
    Read the last book of the Bible it’s all there.

    • Michael D. Cox says:

      I agree with you Rosie… we have been warned for thousands of years…

      • z says:

        …SERIOUSLY…if gods in control of every thing, why would he let the outbreak start in the first place?!?!!!

        • helen says:

          Because no one does what he says. Even the people who are supposedly religious conform his words for their own benefit. It says to cover your hair in the Bible. So how many Christian women in USA do that huh? In Australia they do though.

        • josh says:

          Because we all have failed god and he is just watching us destroy our planet and everyone on it. He gave us free will we use it for more than we should and use god as a crutch instead of as a leader or higher power. Here is a good question for you. Why do people go out every night get drunk or what ever you do and then go to church and pray and ask forgiveness and turn around ad do the same shit. Cause you dont want forgiveness you are there cause there is nothing better to do on Sunday. That is not what god wants. Learn from your sins and better them stupid America.

  19. BVANZANT says:

    I agree with everyone also. There is something coming definitley all the signs,and what not is pretty scary. But whats even scarier is how many people will not be ready for any apocaliptic event no matter if it is zombies or not..even though I have faith in my god, and I beleive every time someone predicts the coming of days,god just moves the date farther down the calender..but aside from that, if it does happen life will never be the same, and we will realize we did not appreciate all the extra neccesities and items we have now. People will kill over the stuff we throw away today..it is sad but very true. It is not a matter of will it happen, but when it will happen. One important bible verse always reminds me just to keep going. Psalm 23:4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your shaft, they comfort me… that is what will remind me to never give up…

  20. ztar says:

    well,there is not many people prepared and anyone who says they are completely prepared,is a liar,i can say im prepared,but not for evrything,i’ll say this ,I will try do anything to survive,any diasaster,but I cant be prepared for evrything.

  21. BVANZANT says:

    As I have been doing more research on this zombie apocalypse, I am very confused on the date it is suppose to occur. Is it December 21, 2012 or as I have also read May 21, 2011 and October 21, 2011? It is very scary because if it does happen in the next coming months we will have no time to prepare! If anyone finds out the best possible answer please submit it… Oh and also what weapon would be best to carry a .22 or a AK47?I ask this question because in an ak47 you can have more nock down power but carry less ammo and it is not that accurate either.. as in a .22 You can carry twice the amount of ammo but not have as much nock down power.. I just dont no which is better please any advice would be helpful.

  22. church says:

    BVANZANT …LMFAO….your kidding rite…remeber this in the end you will be useing stone tipped arrows and cloves pointed spears no matter witch weapon you choose………

  23. ztar says:

    I don’t know unless you have a musket or muzzle loader,and if you know the formula for gun powder,and are able to imprevise projectiles ,that would be the best bet,in my opinion,if you know how to make gunpowder,im not sure how to make gunpowder anyway.

  24. BVANZANT says:

    Uhh I meant when the plague first hits hopefully both of you have firearms in your house..because I dont think youll get very far with a musket or some spears…maybe 10 years down the road if you survive that long, ya then you will have to resort to those types of weapons but until then you could easily loot stores for ammo… I just meant which would be smarter to carry since I cant carry both..by the way I have both of these weapons… (ak47)-(.22 rifle).

  25. ztar says:

    he’ has got a point,but if you really want to know,i would go with a .22 semi auto,because you can stash 3 times as many bullets,they are i don’t know 20$ for a box of 500.And also I
    own guns,It is my Constitutional Right To bear arms.

  26. Mikaoj Noskirneh says:

    When it comes to evil crowds firearms are not the most ideal weapons, they attract attention! Good machette gets you far, rember Rwanda? No gas chambers or machine guns there. The mob did it all with machettes! A short spear with a cutting blade is also handy, even againt a larger opponet. Fire arms are good but loud and should be kept as a last ditch tool, or used when a tactical advantage is reached.

  27. ztar says:

    listen,mikaoj,if this fantasy disaster actually happens i’m going to use a firearm because they are loud and i can have a tactical advantage at all times because zombies is a dead corpse it probably don’t know what a gun is!id shoot it from 15 feet rather than go at it with a machete.

  28. BVANZANT says:

    I, agree with ztar…he does have a point plus I wouldnt want to take the chance to get that close anyways..I think you have it mixed up firearm first then melee weapon..

  29. ztar says:

    and mikaoj,a gun is not loud if you have a silencer.and the whole spear thing,the caveman use to use them to bleed out mammoths,there was no hit with a spear that took down a mammoth,it was all bleed out.i would not want a long pointy stick either ,i would use a musket,then when there is no way for me use the musket,which is if it mechanism fails.then ya maybe i would use a spear.

  30. ben and anothony says:

    its possible it could happen think about this a cow has mad cow diesece if that cow is made into a burger then someone eats the burger and get it they will turn crazy and start
    bitting people so they will infected and turn into canables

  31. BVANZANT says:

    Not, really if it ever happens it will most likely be because of some kind of biological warfare..not mad cow disease. And you are not thinking as broadly as you could, first off it will be a while before we will have to resort to muskets and spears trust me, that is even if your still alive so do not worry about that..just make sure you have some type of bug out bag and weapons and you should be fine since youll more than likley find stuff on the way..Dont be so scared that this controlles your life. I mean the chances of it happening soon are very slim.

  32. ztar says:

    if it happens is slim to none,i would be more worried about the world being taken over by a superpower than zombies.

  33. phillip says:

    ILL BE THE LEADER OF ALL ZOMBIES SO PREPARE EVERYBODY IM ON MY WAY LMFAO 10000000000 TIMES….

  34. Mark says:

    Just really think about it . It already happend to cow for some reason madcow ppl it’s coming sooner then you think.the the undead won’t stay a live long till the bring turns to mush . Where I live you can have a gun and keep in on you at all times without a gun lic. So I think the smart ppl will be ok just hope it happens iam ready for it all .

    • ztar says:

      People all assume this is going to happen, this is all out of your TV, Walking dead, Left 4 dead, and stuff like that make people scared. and people need to realize we have a greater risk of small pox coming back than a Zombie apocalypse, smart people will realize that the world has nuclear bombs that can destroy the world, I would be more worried of some third world leader unleashing nuclear bombs on the world rather than a disease that came completely from TV . smart people can realize how stupid mass hysteria is.

      • josh says:

        That is not fully true there and we have already seen a zombie type attack the stupid American that ate the dudes face of when he was high on that bath salt shit from china or where ever maybe you need to wake up lmao

  35. Mark says:

    That is a news person that worte that and wanted to share it with you all

  36. Michael says:

    My uncle has an arsenal in Indiana. Sadly I live in Arizona. But I would be prepaired with a few knifes, and a baseball bat. I would try to find some weapons with ammo. I will follow your advice as soon if this occurs, ever!

  37. Josh says:

    Anyone that has any survival knowledge knows a .22 is the best weapon to have with you. It is a large enough caliper to hunt with, and protect yourself with if need be, and easy to carry thousands of rounds with adding a small amount of weight. With that in mind, if you are in a secluded area in the mountains or Canada, chances are you will be able to hunt or fish for food pretty easily, since in the event of a national disaster, most people in large cities will die do to the fact of mass panic. Having to only kill game for you and your family and defend against a stray human here and there, 5000 .22 rounds would last you a very long time. Think of all the outlaws hiding in the wilderness. It dosent take much to survive. It’s almost like an extended camping trip. It would also be a good idea to carry some pure silver, as this can be mixed with water and used to treat illness and injuries. It can also be used to purify water. A butane lighter with a dozen bottles of butane is a light and effective way to start fires for an extended period of time, but have a spare at your shelter incase you fall in a river. Electrical tape is also very useful. I would also recommend a few days supply of water. Three days without water, three weeks without food. The human body is meant to survive. If you push yourself, you will be just fine. Amazing what they teach you in the military.

  40. Dayannara says:

    I’d rather let a zombie bite me, escape and complete the transformation rather than run around starving, hopeless and scared to death when 90% of the human population has been turned to zombies. I mean even if there’s a cure, would there even be enough for everyone? If there are weapons, how can we get our hands on them when there’s too much danger around? And eventually, food will run out.

  41. Lizzett says:

    Okay, so the idea of zombies COMPLETELY terrifies me! But I think the media has totally messed up our versions of zombies. I watched an older black and white zombie movies, and they’re not scary at all. But all the zombie movies now?
    I don’t think zombies will become real. I think something weird will happen that is going to look like a zombie invasion.
    I think that, in 2012, some idiot is coing to dress a bunch of people like zombies, and the media is going to freak out, and make a huge deal out of it. We’re so scared about a zombie apocalypse- but what if it’s just all part of our imagination? I mean, of course it’s all made up.(in my opinion) But it’s really scary! Why would the media make this up??

  42. Michel says:

    With everything that’s been happening in the last couple of weeks, we should really start to listen to those geeks!

  43. Michael says:

    Ok this is what i got to say…..: I really think that the fact, story, whatever the shit about zombies is fake (the old times when the zombies use to come back to life from there graves)…… I think that its possible that terrorist or are own goverment can make biochemical weapon that can turn people crazy and like shut down arebrains and makes us not remember anything or anyone and makes super hungry and makes us litertly eat anything (turn us into cannibals) and no matter if its a family member of urs u just wont care and tear the person into pieces and eat them…. :/ if this thing happens were ganna have to make alot of sacrifices even if there a best friend, family member, or whoever is in problems…… Were ganna have to make alot of bad decisions (by bad i mean its something that u never done before like killing someone) even if u hate to do it…. Just kkep in mind that this shit is not to play with…. Its actually a very serious thing to disscus when it comes to biological weapons….. Its just how it is… Dont make fun of things that u dont know that could happen :/ if this happens u wont be saying that u arent scared or that u dont care cuz when the time comes u will be scared shitless and wont know what to do in a time of panic like that…… Im just saying i will be scared shitless and trust i wont lie but even if i have to ill cry because all of that suffering that the people will be having it will afect me… But ill try to be as strong as possible to protect my family and friends….. ask me anything if you want to I’ll respect anything you said justdon’t go hating on me because I know this will happen some day cuz theres alot of stuff out there that is unbelieveble ……. :/

    I think all of you are full of it with this zombie bull shit. Ill tell you wats really gona happen, Read revalations in the bible, yes there will be disasters, earthquakes, tornados, rain hail, radiation blast from a nuke, all of witch the govt will put people in camps those who do not except the mark of the beast.

  46. josh says:

    I dont think religion has shit to do with what is coming. I think our American government will end life on earth as we see it. And the zombie attack is not as hard to believe as the bible as the cathlics took out what all was in the bible and still do. The Christian religion is all based on lies and contradictions. I had the bible beat into my head as a kid I have seen shit from a really old bible that is not in any of the new bibles. Besides this is off the topic. Our government is only worried about one thing and one thing only these days and that is money. Greed is going to get the best of them and we will pay for it with our lives like we always do. Join the army or the air force fight for your freedom. We are not as free as you think we are. 9 11 was a government inside job there was no hijacking or the plains they where American air force plains and demolition team that planted bombs in the towers to make the fall. The government is against us not for us. I thought viral weaponry and researching viral weaponry was and is illegal. So why are we waiting money making viral weapons. So much stupid in America there really is.

  47. Talisha says:

    Zombies could be real in the futur. Right now if you believe there will be zombies, prepare, if it never happens you will have very good practice! If you don’t believe thay will come, and they do but didn’t practice, good luck by that time and protect your family… Pretect your enimies if not SO bad because that is all you will have unless you would rather partner up with a zombie. Also, whoever you trust best should have night shifts with you- EXAMPLE:Mom:10pm to 7am…the next night You:9:30pm to 7am.Next to do is listen carefully, take steps as if you were an ant(Like me for practice around the house), listen for screams, look for survivers, and be a hero to loved ones, friends, and yourself!
    P.S. I am saying this at the age of 12.
