Are you ready for a zombie invasion?

As the fall season approaches, the El Dorado County Health and Human Services Agency encourages residents to join the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s “Don’t be a Zombie. Be Prepared” campaign by doing three simple things — get a kit, make a plan, and be informed.

“If your family and neighbors are prepared for a zombie invasion, then you’re ready for any emergency whether it’s fire, extreme weather or a pandemic,” said Kristine Oase-Guth, Health Education Coordinator with the HHSA Public Health Preparedness section,

Oase-Guth offers the following tips to residents for all-hazards preparedness:

Get A Kit. After an emergency, it may not be possible to get to the grocery store or other supply stores. Take time now to put together an emergency preparedness kit. It’s important to have at least three to seven days of food, water and supplies for each member of the household, including pets.

Make A Plan.  Develop a family emergency plan that details how to contact one another, how to get to a safe place, and what to do in different situations. Practice this plan before an emergency.

Be Informed. Learn more about practical common-sense preparedness. Staying informed can help our community successfully prepare for, adapt to, and recover from disasters.
