    FEMA’s Ready Campaign and the Ad Council joined with Sony Pictures on their upcoming film “Zombieland: Double Tap” to promote the critical message of emergency preparedness.

    A decade after the first film, “Zombieland,” the lead cast and original writers and director have reunited for “Zombieland: Double Tap.” As part of the sequel’s release, Sony Pictures developed a public service announcement with original film footage for the Ready Campaign. The PSA will air before the film in movie theaters across the country.


    The PSA and promotional posters feature Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Abigail Breslin, Emma Stone and other cast members describing what families should do now to prepare for disasters with the theme, “Zombies don’t plan ahead. You can. Make your emergency plan.”

    As part of the promotion, the @Ready Twitter and the Ready Facebook page will be using the PSA to encourage the public to get prepared for emergencies.

    The new PSA is an extension of FEMA's Ready campaign, which has helped to generate more than 100 million unique visitors to the campaign’s website, Ready.gov, since its launch in 2003. Through the Ad Council, to date, the Ready campaign has received more than $1.6 billion in donated media.

    How is the film or the ad related to ham radio?

    Good Lord...

    Two things.

    1. This is why people are always caught off guard and disasters turn into more human misery than it should in today's day and age.

    2. Message: Plan and Practice. If you don't do this, it's your fault, not mine. If you're a ham, this applies. If you're not a ham, it doesn't have anything to do with ham radio.

    No matter how much you try to tell people, real emergencies cause many folks to freeze up, some folks will look for a leader and will do what ever that leader says, and a few folks become leaders. It's an evolutionary thing that's built into us and most people don't know about it, they don't expect it, don't believe it and are surprised about it when it happens and if they survive, they either rationalize their excuses and continue to believe what they want to believe and ignore their lying eyes, or they *learn* from it. Those who plan and practice become leaders.

    Hope for the best, plan for the worst. Peace out.

    What a waste of bandwidth. Pure fiction.

    Does this suggest that I should stop at the sporting goods store and pick up another can of, ahem, zombie "repellent"? You know, the kind made from brass and lead?

    RLD - No, it means you should stop at an ice cream shop/bar on the way to the radio store to treat your self and then go to the radio store to stop and stare in awe at what you wish you had...
    If you think ahead of time you can react when it's time.
