very well done queensland police
so dear reader it has come to this .. i’m very impressed and frightened by the fact that queensland police have decided to scare the pants off all of us with brains, or is that brians ? and announce that because it’s world zombie day, our existence is being tested. it’s actually a very clever use of social networking, and current everyday technology. most government departments or indeed politicians, have no freak’n clue of how to use such simple applications, but the queensland police have a firm grasp and are showing their might.
i have decided to bunker down and follow their advice, keep my brian and brain well clear of any impending danger. i’d suggest that you do as well, zombies are just a pain, a pain in the brain.
Are you prepared for the zombie apocalypse?
*disclaimer: World Zombie Day is a charity event, and there is no real risk of having your brains eaten. This is a test of our new QldAlert page*
Here at Queensland Police Media, we are working hard to make sure we are as ready as we can be, which is why we have created QldAlert, a one-stop avenue to find all the relevant online material and the latest information should disaster strike, or zombies attack.
On this page, we will collate everything we can find online that we think might be useful in preparing for, responding to, and recovering from, the worst that nature can throw at you. And it doesn’t come much worse than brains-hungry zombies, now, does it?
Depending on the incident, you will be able to use this page to find the latest information from your local council, Government departments and other groups such as power suppliers, public transport, and charities.
It will take the form of text, map-based information, video, twitter feeds and Facebook postings – anything we think will help you prepare, respond and recover from a disaster or incident.
Today is World Zombie Day, a charitable event developed to help feed the poor ( see more information on the linked website) and there have been reports of zombies roaming the streets around the world.
What better time to test out the page’s functionality and work with our partners in emergency response in Queensland on improving our service to you?
So, are you ready to withstand zombie attacks?
In case of emergency, use this page to plan your preparation activities, find out the latest information on zombie movements in your area, and keep up-to-date on police activities as our officers work to keep you safe.
Good luck, and thanks for visiting. We’ll see you here when a disaster really strikes!
i was very lucky, while attending that recent and most secret conference, to witness a presentation by deputy commissioner ross barnett, it’s the most attention i’ve given to a policeman in a long while, it was well worth it. this first video might require you to boost your audio level and is very real, while the following one less so !!
