Norfolk, Va. - At around 11, zombies started roaming around City Hall in Norfolk!

There’s no need to fear. They weren't looking for brains to eat. They just wanted to warn you to be prepared.

It's part of Norfolk's Community Emergency Response Team's effort to make sure people are ready for disasters.

“It`s just a different spin on preparedness. Lots of times, we have the same kind of doom and gloom message about preparedness and people don`t always listen to that message. They`re kind of put off by it,” says Linda Botts with the Norfolk Medical Reserve Corps.
