Topeka — Kansas emergency management officials are urging residents to prepare for an invasion of zombies as part of a national disaster readiness campaign.
October is Zombie Preparedness Month, a tongue-in-cheek campaign to get people nationwide to prepare for any type of disaster — including attacks by killer zombies.
The point is to get people to take an all-hazards approach to preparing themselves for things like tornadoes, floods and terrorist attacks.
The Kansas Division of Emergency Management says if people are prepared for zombie attacks, they're ready for anything.
Several Topeka events are scheduled as part of the awareness effort, including an information booth Saturday, Trunk or Treat on Oct. 27, and a Spooktacular Safety Fair and Zombie Preparedness Day on Oct. 29 in downtown Topeka.
