Topeka Kansans are being encouraged to prepare for an invasion of the living dead, with Gov. Sam Brownback scheduled to sign a proclamation later this week declaring October Zombie Preparedness Month.
The state Division of Emergency Management says if residents are prepared for a zombie attack, they're prepared for anything. Deputy director Angee Morgan says the idea is to make people aware of the need to be ready for emergency situations like natural disasters, catastrophic storms, fires — even a swarm of zombies.
Brownback is slated to sign the proclamation at 11 a.m. Friday in his ceremonial office in the Statehouse.
