The CDC, or the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention, are raising the public’s awareness of the American governmental entity by offering free Zombie Preparedness posters to the public. As part of the current Zombie craze, and probably as a way to ride the popularity they’ve received from playing a central role in the hit show The Walking Dead last season, the CDC is urging everyone to be better prepared for the Zombie Apocalypse.
Two styles of posters can be downloaded directly from the CDC’s official website, with instructions to order printed posters. They come in two different sizes and supposedly can be ordered, one each per person, directly from the website. I tried to order the posters for myself, however each time the item was listed as out of stock and couldn’t be processed. It would make sense that that portion of the page would be a joke since the government is dire straits as it is so why would they print and ship posters to citizens for something that isn’t even serious. What’s nice, though, is that the downloadable PDF files on the website are extremely hi-resolution, and includes cut marks in each of the corners. So if someone really wanted to hang this poster on the wall of their bedroom, they could take the file to any Staples or Office Depot and get a printed poster.
The CDC has created the coolest promotion of any government organization that I have ever seen. Now the Red Cross needs to step up their game and create posters listing the warning signs of Vampirism so that my home décor can be complete.
