PSA for Zombie Preparedness


If you're ready for a zombie apocalypse, then you're ready for any emergency. emergency.cdc.gov
You can never be too prepared.

See what the Center for Disease Control says about the possibility of a zombie apocalypse.

I think the CDC is on to something, using humor and pop culture to pull unsuspecting people into a conversation about a serious topic, such as preparing your family for an emergency.

There may be more people out there searching for information on zombies than on a family emergency plan.

I will let you know if my blog search hits for Business Intelligence software go way up just by mentioning zombies.
