If the zombie apocalypse occurs, people need to head to Kansas because they’re prepared.

Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback (R) signed a proclamation on Wednesday declaring October as “Zombie Preparedness Month,” according to the Kansas City Star.

At the ceremony, the governor wanted to show Kansas citizens that they are prepared in case of any possible emergency, including a zombie apocalypse. The Kansas Division of Emergency Management staff was on hand during the event along with several actors playing zombies.

“If you’re prepared for zombies, you’re prepared for anything. 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,” Brownback said in a statement.

During the month of October, the state emergency management staff and other agencies will be sharing information and promoting zombie preparedness challenges on Facebook and Twitter.
