Pretty sure that's not what's meant by "zombie" here. It's more that your higher reasoning abilities are destroyed...actual organic brain damage. What's left is base instinctual drives. You become zombified.
Want a glimpse of what this might look like? Take a look outside for a sec. Pretty damned close.

When a person dies their blood becomes coagulated and their lungs stop absorbing oxygen. Because of this their bodies cannot produce a molecule known as adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is a coenzyme that is used as an energy carrier in all known organisms. We especially use it to move our muscles, this is why a person goes into rigor mortis after they die, the body stops producing ATP and their muscles become locked. Zombies in the sense of coming back to life after death cannot exist because their bodies will not produce ATP and they cannot move their muscles.
It may be possible for zombies in the sense of the 'zombie ant fungus' though
The zombie virus (or parasite) takes over the nervous system and does what it can with the host body.

So what do you need to do before zombies…or hurricanes or pandemics for example, actually happen? First of all, you should have an emergency kit in your house. This includes things like water, food, and other supplies to get you through the first couple of days before you can locate a zombie-free refugee camp (or in the event of a natural disaster, it will buy you some time until you are able to make your way to an evacuation shelter or utility lines are restored). Below are a few items you should include in your kit, for a full list visit the CDC Emergency page. Water (1 gallon per person per day) Food (stock up on non-perishable items that you eat regularly) Medications (this includes prescription and non-prescription meds) Tools and Supplies (utility knife, duct tape, battery powered radio, etc.) Sanitation and Hygiene (household bleach, soap, towels, etc.) Clothing and Bedding (a change of clothes for each family member and blankets) Important documents (copies of your driver’s license, passport, and birth certificate to name a few) First Aid supplies (although you’re a goner if a zombie bites you, you can use these supplies to treat basic cuts and lacerations that you might get during a tornado or hurricane) Once you’ve made your emergency kit, you should sit down with your family and come up with an emergency plan. This includes where you would go and who you would call if zombies started appearing outside your door step. You can also implement this plan if there is a flood, earthquake, or other emergency.
In a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. And we who are living will also be transformed.
Too much work. The best way to kill a zombie? Starve him. It's a no-brainer.

I'm confident once a person is dead, drained of their blood and put into caskets that the likeliness of them returning to the surface of the earth is right around 0%....
Even if they did, they'd be looking for a drink of water.. Not brains.

Seems to me the CDC has gotten itself a great PR department. Can we now call them the Center for Disease and Comedy? I'm also wary because I believe that there is always truth in humor.
