It's always good to be prepared - and the University of Florida is making sure officials are fully briefed on survival plans in case of a zombie apocalypse.

The school made a plan for responding to the rise of the undead available on its website, alongside more traditional outlines for dealing with hurricanes and pandemics.

The exercise lays out how university officials would respond to attacks by 'flesh-eating, apparently life impaired individuals.' It notes that a zombie outbreak might include 'documentation of lots of strange moaning.'


Among the list of 'tentative' proposals to better prepare the University for the day when the dead shall walk the Earth are the suggestions 'equip all offices with easily barricaded doors able to withstand prolonged zombie incursion attempts' and 'equip all staff with long range (e.g. rifles) and short range (e.g. hand guns) firearms or other weaponry (e.g. chain saws, baseball bats, LPs) for defense against the infected and to dispatch possibly infected co-workers.' ...link (http://www.metro.co.uk/weird/article.html?Florida_university_prepares_for_zombi e_outbreak&in_article_id=747221&in_page_id=2)

Imagine, an academic with a sense of humour. ;)

You're either a Florida Gator or you're gator bait... That includes zombies.

They run this exercise every other year when the Seminoles play in the Swamp.
