You’ve probably heard about the CDC’s quirky Zombie Preparedness campaign. If not, read on, and I’ll summarize below, but believe me it puts the fun in functional by using humor to advocate preparedness. This week, the CDC announced that Zombie Task Force T-shirts are now available.
“Zombie Task Force t-shirt are made of super-soft, pre-shrunk, ringspun cotton and feature the CDC logo on the front and the ZTF moto on the back ‘Don’t Be a Zombie, Be Prepared.’ Shirts are available in sizes: S, M, L, XL and XXL.” Click here to plunk down your $12 for the only bit of BCP fashion I’ve ever heard of! They’re selling like hotcakes, so hurry!

Says the CDC site, “What first began as a tongue in cheek campaign to engage new audiences with preparedness messages has proven to be a very effective platform. We continue to reach and engage a wide variety of audiences on all hazards preparedness via Zombie Preparedness; and as our own director, Dr. Ali Khan, notes, ‘If you are generally well equipped to deal with a zombie apocalypse you will be prepared for a hurricane, pandemic, earthquake, or terrorist attack.'”
