You've probably already heard. The CDC has issued a statement about what we should do in the event of a zombie apocalypse. For real!

Get A Kit,    Make A Plan, Be Prepared. emergency.cdc.gov

Of course, the real point is to encourage us to have a plan in the event of ANY emergency, asteroid strike to zombie apocalypse, inclusive. I don't think there are many people out there who don't feel like we're living in strange days. The news is seldom good. (Simon and Garfunkle's Silent Night 7'oclock News comes to mind. Great song/vid; just substitute any day's news to make the video current and relevant.)
Do you need to go hard-core survivalist? No, and you're bound to attract the attention of the ATF if you stockpile weapons and ammo. But it wouldn't hurt to have a bug-out bag and some clean drinking water, and ammo for any weapon you do have. And don't share the details of your stockpile or your plans with anyone you don't want tagging along. If you live near a border, make sure you have your documents ready and in an easily-accessible place so you can move freely. Just plan ahead a little bit and use some common sense. Add some tradeable items like cigarettes, new socks, or protein bars to your BOB. Think ahead and be creative. Have a meeting place (both near and far) for family members. Consider joining Twitter, as it seems to be the most reliable way of getting/spreading news in disaster scenarios. Have a windup flashlight and radio. Make sure everyone has sturdy boots. Ask your doctor to write you an extra prescription so you can store some meds in your BOB.
Long story short: Don't wait for the zombie apocalypse. Plan ahead now.

Peace and brains,
~O~

This is a great campaign idea! Awesome! I'll have to check it out. I have the CDC bookmarked, but it's the real-time spread of epidemic page, so... ;-)
