Did I miss a meeting?

Today, while conducting maintenance and inventory at our fire station, we discovered that the old “sleepers” quarters above the engine bay had been left unlocked. The room is always padlocked, so it has remained something of a mystery to our crew β€” until now.

Along with emergency supplies, water bottles, a dozen empty 55 gallon drums, dried food and bags of vegetable seeds, we found this:


It’s from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and labeled:

Oregon Emergency Management Services: Zombie Pandemic Preparedness

Um… did I miss a meeting?

  1. I actually just read about this. The CDC recently ran a massive outbreak simulation, and chose as their theme “Zombie Apocolypse”. Someone with a massive sense of humor, or they know something that they are keeping well hidden… πŸ™‚ That must be what all the coffins are for too. Hey, check into this, because I have read several articles that have pictures of mass coffins questioning what these are for. Go Investigative Reporter, go!

  2. i would like to contribute a massive jar of red pimentos and a monstrous jar of mayonnaise
    to the room. these are the items that my step aunt and her husband chose to stock up on during the y2k non-event. amazing thought process behind these choices i’m sure. p.s i really like the poster. my last experience with zombies was when i saw them hanging on the corner with a fat elvis and santa during our last midnight madness here. that’s all i’ve got.

    • I remember seeing those huge billboards with a zombie woman peaking through the window blinds, and the question: “Are you prepared?” I thought it was brilliant then, but didn’t realize the CDC’s “zombie” campaign was still going.

      Thanks for the link!

      But I still have to wonder: Isn’t the best way to hide the truth by NOT hiding? (Da-da-DA!)

  3. Actually it is supposed to be for the joint exercise being held by the CDC and Homeland security. Unfortunately they both seem to have gotten stuck on the ‘joint’ part. Alas that is how the zombies took over the country….. fortunately you sir are poised to be the head of the resistance movement.

    • Hahaha! My guess is that things came to a halt somewhere in a marijuana field in Oregon. The rest of us will be meeting in the old “sleepers” quarters at the fire station at midnight. Bring a flashlight and baseball bat.

  4. That’s why the first C in CDC stands for Comedy.
    The second C stands for Aluminum because they’re horrible spellers.

No one is watching, I swear...
