Gov. Brownback Says Zombie Preparedness Month Starts Soon In Kansas


By Edward M. Eveld, The Kansas City Star (TNS)

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Absent a zombie apocalypse before then, Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback this week will sign a proclamation designating October as “Zombie Preparedness Month” in his state.

The ceremony is planned for Wednesday at the Capitol, a reminder of the need to be prepared for any emergency. Kansas Division of Emergency Management staff will be on hand.

“If you’re prepared for zombies, you’re prepared for anything,” Brownback said in a statement. “Although an actual zombie apocalypse will never happen, the preparation for such an event is the same as for any disaster: make a disaster kit, have a plan and practice it.”

During October, state emergency management staff and other public agencies will provide information and zombie preparedness challenges on social media.

    Zombie preparedness began a few weeks before the first Republican debate but didn’t help us much.

    I’m not getting taken in. This is too weird even for Kansas.

    I beg to differ. A zombie apocalypse has already occurred in Kansas. Witness Brownback in the governor’s chair. Need I say more

    Schools are a national joke, state is hemorrhaging jobs, their deficits are rising faster than the bean counters can keep track, and these people reelected this guy?
