The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (or CDC) is an agency of the United States Department of Health and Human Services based in unincorporated DeKalb County in the Atlanta metropolitan area, Georgia, United States adjacent to the campus of Emory University and northeast of downtown Atlanta. It works to protect public health and safety by providing information to enhance health decisions, and it promotes health through partnerships with state health departments and other organizations. The CDC focuses national attention on developing and applying disease prevention and control (especially infectious diseases), environmental health, occupational safety and health, health promotion, prevention and education activities designed to improve the health of the people of the United States. The CDC would be responsible for the "containment" of the initial outbreaks, it would be heavily defended and one of the last places to lose contact with the rest of the world. Gaining access to the CDC would heavily increase survival chances.
Zombie attack planEdit
"Wonder why Zombies, Zombie Apocalypse, and Zombie Preparedness continue to live or walk dead on a CDC web site? As it turns out 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." So please log on, get a kit, make a plan, and be prepared!"
It should be noted that the planning tools and information provided are targeted toward basic sustenance and supplies for two or three days, and in a situation where an otherwise minor crisis has taken place, such as a bad storm or short-term power outage, and where emergency services remain functional.
