TORRONTO – If you’re heading to Canada soon, and you don’t want to die, then listen up. If you’re ready for a zombie attack, then you’re ready for just about anything.

That’s the message British Columbia is sending its citizens and tourists in a website it launched this week, which provides tips on about how to prepare for a fake zombie apocalypse.
Apparently, zombies have been ‘popping’ up more than normal in the otherwise lush, green, majestic woods covered region of Canada; although a tourist agency eluded to the Zombie experience possibly being part of a marketing stunt.
The vast province on Canada’s west coast has initiated a surprise preparedness campaign to help people take precautions in the event of any disaster – even a zombie attack.
The campaign is fake of course, but the website and its message about safety is not.
Emergency Info BC is using the faux preparedness tips to promote readiness for natural catastrophes which could strike the region.
“While the chance of zombies a-knockin’ on your door is pretty slim, we do believe that if you’re ready for zombies, you’re ready for any disaster,” the website said.
Its campaign is like a “blog about surviving a zombie attack” and is meant to be completely “fictional.”
It includes guidelines in case of an epidemic that transforms people into zombies, a map of risk zones in British-Columbia and instructions for what to include in one’s survival kit. The site also makes use of links to real resources for real disasters.
According to Emergency Info: “Other than zombie attack, your region may be susceptible to flooding, earthquakes or tsunamis. Find out and get prepared.”
