Zombies as portrayed in the movie Night of the Living Dead by George Romero (Credit: George Romero, uploaded by user Jkelly via en.wikipedia.org)The Department of Homeland Security is warning us to prepare for a zombie apocalypse.  Is this the latest chemical warfare strategy of al Qaeda?  The result of an imminent nuclear attack?

Actually, it’s a public relations stunt put on by our government to help us prepare for genuine disasters.  The Federal Emergency Management Agency hosted an online seminar to aid planners in preparing their communities for disasters, asking them to imagine an attack of zombies and design response plans.  Such strategies are supposed to help in the event of hurricanes, tornadoes, and the like.

The Centers for Disease Control did the same thing last year, with a campaign that was so successful it crashed the agency’s servers.  However, after the horrific face-eating attack in Miami last May, the agency assured us that the “CDC does not know of a virus or condition that would reanimate the dead (or one that would present zombie-like symptoms).”  That’s good to know.
