Don’t Be a Zombie, Be Prepared!
[Announcer] This program is brought to you by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
[Caydan] Kaya, I was thinking… what if zombies invaded?!?!
[Kaya] Oh Caydan, that can’t happen; zombies aren’t real!
[Caydan] Okay, okay, but what if they were real, how would we get away from them?
[Kaya] I guess preparing for zombies taking over is just like preparing for any emergency, like hurricanes, earthquakes, or tornadoes. We would need an emergency kit.
[Caydan] What kinds of things should we put in our emergency kit?
[Kaya] We’ll need flashlights and extra batteries, food and water for three days, blankets, hand sanitizer, bandaids, and a portable radio. I’m sure our parents can think of other stuff.
[Caydan] Oh Kaya! We can’t forget about Max The Wonder Dog! What will he do in an emergency?! We need to pack an emergency kit for him, too!
[Kaya] Good thinking, Caydan! We’ll pack three days of dog food and water for Max. And we’ll throw in his special blanket, some treats, and his favorite toy.
[Caydan] Yeah, and we should probably make an emergency plan with our parents if there’s a REAL emergency, like a flood.
[Kaya] And we need to make a list of telephone numbers, like the police, fire department, and friends and family we could call during an emergency.
[Caydan] And, we need an escape plan. We might need to get out of town fast!
[Kaya] We need to talk to our parents and plan where we would go; we should probably plan more than one route.
[Caydan] Kaya, we’ll be ready for any kind of emergency now, won’t we?! EVEN zombies?!
[Kaya] Don’t forget kids, always be safe and always be prepared!
Thanks for listening to CDC Kidtastics Radio. We’ll talk to you again soon. Until then... be a safer, healthier kid!!
