In Delaware, Ohio, 200 people turned out to volunteer as the walking dead... supposedly turned that way after a nearby chemical leak.

The first responders need to keep the mock disaster--and the victims-- contained.

The county's Emergency Management Agency director says it's hard to find volunteers for a mock hazardous materials incident...but not so with a zombie incident. ...and after all...the same thing you do for a zombie incident is the same thing you would do for a hazardous materials incident.

For the record, this all started with the Centers For Disease Control which fictitiously asked if America was ready for a zombie attack.
