State emergency management officials are urging Kansans to prepare for an invasion of zombies. It's part of a disaster readiness campaign. October is Zombie Preparedness Month. It's a tongue-in-cheek campaign to get people nationwide to prepare for any type of disaster - by preparing for a zombie attack. Devan Tucking is with the Kansas Division of Emergency Management. She says the zombie aspect is an eye-catcher, because preparing for that will prepare people for tornadoes, floods and terrorist attacks.
Several events are planned in Topeka this month to to raise awareness of the campaign.
