Zombie Apocalypse, What Can You do to Protect Yourself?

Zombie ApocalypseWhen the CDC first promoted their Zombie Apocalypse preparedness plan, it was really just a way in which to educate the public about being ready for any kind of catastrophe.  With recent news of drug-induced rampages involving zombie-like behavior, some people have gotten a little nervous.


Luckily, should a real zombie pandemic ever occur, there are several films and web-series to educate us.  In fact, while this was originally filmed as a humorous video, it now has obvious real-life applications.
