Zombie Squad to tout preparedness at library

October 24, 2012


Just in time for Halloween, the Kansas City chapter of The Zombie Squad will come to the Lawrence Public Library, 707 Vermont, today to give advice on disaster planning, home winterization and dealing with legions of the undead.

According to The Zombie Squad’s website, the group’s mission “is to educate the public about the importance of personal preparedness and community service, to increase its readiness to respond to disasters such as earthquakes, floods or zombie outbreaks.”

The meeting will be at 7 p.m. today. The group will also have its zombie-ready jeep on display. For more information visit

Big, the zombie theme with this group is merely a flashy vehicle to promote the sometimes dry subject of disaster preparedness. Our world is a different place than it was even decades ago, and a little forethought of what we ought to have on hand or at the ready in a disaster situation, whatever it may be, would do many of us, if not all of us, some good. Ideally, we'd never have to use these plans, but at least they're in place.
