The University of Florida is Prepared for Zombie Attacks — Just in Case

It's great to know that your school is ready for everything, and students at the University of Florida can rest easy knowing their college is prepared to handle a zombie outbreak. An employee in the school's academic technology office wrote up a disaster preparedness simulation exercise, outlining what steps the university should take to identify and deal with an outbreak of "zombie behavior spectrum disorder." The guideline recommends, among other things, exercising proper hygiene during an outbreak, dispelling myths about zombies among the student body, and developing policies and procedures for dispatching an infected co-worker.

A spokesperson from UF says the module was added to the school's e-learning resources site to "add a little bit of levity" to disaster preparedness discussions. Of course, maybe they just know something we don't.
