State of Kansas declares October official 'Zombie Preparedness Month'

If you live in the state of Kansas, we have some awesome news — it’s officially “Zombie Preparedness Month.”

In an effort to promote general disaster preparedness, Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback has declared October “Zombie Preparedness Month.” It’s a clever move and, if nothing else, a nice way to get the general public excited about something like disaster preparedness. Plus, you know, it’s October — what better time to capitalize on the undead for the sake of public safety?

The governor noted, “If you’re prepared for zombies you’re prepared for anything.” Which, yeah, fair point. The state’s department of emergency management provided some tips that could come in handy if the undead start eating the living (or in the event of a flood or earthquake). Tips include learning CPR and basic first aid and stocking at least 72 hours of food, water and supplies in your home (plus keeping an emergency kit in any vehicles).

What do you think of the zombie month concept? A sneaky way to get the public excited about disaster preparedness, or just a lifeless cash-in?
