CDC has a fun new way of teaching the importance of emergency preparedness. Our new graphic novel, "Preparedness 101: Zombie Pandemic" demonstrates the importance of being prepared in an entertaining way that people of all ages will enjoy. Readers follow Todd, Julie, and their dog Max as a strange new disease begins spreading, turning ordinary people into zombies. Stick around to the end for a surprising twist that will drive home the importance of being prepared for any emergency. Included in the novel is a Preparedness Checklist so that readers can get their family, workplace, or school ready before disaster strikes. Click on the images below to view the novella. Transcripts of each chapter are provided below each chapter thumbnail.
Said it the last time the CDC did the zombie thing, I think it takes some guts to do something like this. I find it hard to imagine a government agency doing this.
Oh BTW, I think it's awesome. :)
If this helps spread the "it's never to early to prepare" then I feel it's my tax dollars well spent. That said, I hope they don't go to overboard. Investing a little in this is cool, but too much is well, too much...
