We've all known it was just a matter of time before the upcoming zombie apocalypse is taken serious by officials. 

And now, it has. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) posted a blog this past Monday, may 16th regarding the the threat of the undead. Really, the blog post on the CDC's website was a fun, light hearted way to aproch very real issues we all face, natural disasters. 

Living in Myrtle Beach we are all well aware of the threat of hurricane season, and this Zombie Blog posted by the CDC was really just telling us what we should all have on hand for those "just in case" scenarios. 

What are some of the basics the CDC recomends we all have on hand?

  • Water (1 gallon per person per day)
  • Food (stock up on non-perishable items that you eat regularly)
  • Medications (this includes prescription and non-prescription meds)
  • Tools and Supplies (utility knife, duct tape, battery powered radio, etc.)
  • Sanitation and Hygiene (household bleach, soap, towels, etc.)
  • Clothing and Bedding (a change of clothes for each family member and blankets)
  • Important documents (copies of your driver’s license, passport, and birth certificate to name a few)
  • First Aid supplies (although you’re a goner if a zombie bites you, you can use these supplies to treat basic cuts and lacerations that you might get during a tornado or hurricane)

Head on over to the CDC's blog and read the rest of what they recomend you have on hand for the zombie apocalypse or any disaster that may come upon us.
