Webinar: Zombie Awareness - Effective Practices in Promoting Disaster Preparedness

  • 09/06/2012
  • 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
  • Webinar

Are you ready for a "Zombie Apocalypse?" While the walking dead may not be the first on your list of local hazards, zombie preparedness messages and activities have proven to be an effective way of engaging new audiences who may not be familiar with what to do before, during and after a disaster, and to inject a little levity into preparedness while still informing and educating people. As director of the Center for Disease Control, Dr. Ali Khan, notes, "If you are generally well equipped to deal with a zombie apocalypse you will be prepared for a hurricane, pandemic, earthquake or terrorist attack."

Listen as speakers introduce fun and innovative emergency preparedness activities for communities to spark some attention and get people involved before it’s too late. These activities can be planned in September, during National Preparedness Month and executed just in time for Halloween.

Featured Speakers:

  • Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which launched its Zombie Apocalypse Social Media Campaign
  • Kansas Department of Emergency Management will discuss their Zombie Awareness Month, which is held each October and ideas for activities and events that you can host in your communities this fall.
