Are You Ready For The Zombie Apocalypse?


"There are all kinds of emergencies out there that we can prepare for. Take a zombie apocalypse for example. That's right, I said z-o-m-b-i-e a-p-o-c-a-l-y-p-s-e. You may laugh now, but when it happens you'll be happy you read this, and hey, maybe you'll even learn a thing or two about how to prepare for a real emergency."-- from an article originally posted on CDC Public Health Matters Blog on May 16th, 2011 by Ali S. Khan.

Learn about storm chasing, severe weather history, and current climate challenges. Chasing4Life's mission is to educate the public about disaster awareness and how to be prepared in the event of the emergency that you never thought would happen. Whether it is a tornado, flood, blizzard, or even terrorist attack, there are things you can do to protect your family!

Be watching this space for more information in the next few days. In addition to the evening program for adults, there will be a special story time at 3:00 called "The Purple Tornado" for the younger tots.  We are so excited to be able to offer his children's program this Sat. March 23 @ 3:00 pm. Find out who throws thunderbolts in the sky! Join us! (Because of this wonderful opportunity, the Wimpy Kid Party has been postponed until later this Spring.)

At 4:30 pm, teens and older kids are invited to prepare for the "Zombie Apocalypse".

Did you know that the United States can expect 10,000 violent thunderstorms, 5,000 floods, and 1,000 tornadoes every year? Get your family prepared for severe weather season.
