The US government has offered advice on how to prepare for a zombie apocalypse.

A member of the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), which deals with public health and safety issues, posted a blog entry explaining how to boost chances of survival.

"You may laugh now, but when it happens you'll be happy you read this," reads the blog. "And hey, maybe you'll even learn a thing or two about how to prepare for a real emergency."

The post says that people should always have an emergency kit bag in their homes, which should include items such as water, non-perishable food, soap and clothes. It also suggests keeping first aid supplies in the bag, although it adds that "you're a goner if a zombie bites you".

"Once you've made your emergency kit, you should sit down with your family and come up with an emergency plan," the article continues. "This includes where you would go and who you would call if zombies started appearing outside your doorstep."

In the event of an outbreak, the blog recommends finding a zombie-free refugee camp.

The agency affirms: "If zombies did start roaming the streets, CDC would conduct an investigation much like any other disease outbreak."

They also state that most of their advice is applicable to natural disasters, such as tornadoes and earthquakes.
