We are the Hackettstown NJ Zombie Research Society (HZRS)! The HZRS is a local New Jersey chapter of the Zombie Research Society (ZRS). Our goal is to promote zombie awareness and preparedness by spreading knowledge about the undead and the threat they represent to the survival of the human race. The HZRS also provides a tongue-in-cheek focus for serious issues and to emphasize the importance of emergency preparedness to the northern New Jersey communities while helping to raise funds and spread awareness within the community about charitable organizations.
Founded in 2007, the Zombie Research Society (ZRS) is dedicated to raising the level of zombie scholarship in the Arts and Sciences. ZRS Members represent diverse backgrounds, interests, and theories, but are unified in their support of the Society's three foundational principles:
1) A zombie is a biologically definable, animated being occupying a human corpse.
2) The zombie pandemic is coming. It's not a matter of if, but a matter of when.
3) Enthusiastic debate about zombies is essential to the survival of the human race.
