With the increasing amount of zombie outbreak drills happening across the U.S., along with the mysterious cannibalistic attacks, it seems that even the government is certain of a zombie apocalypse on the horizon. Security firm, HALO Corp, will be holding a zombie apocalypse drill as a part of their annual counter-terrorism summit next month.
The Military Times reports that HALO’s drill will include around 1,000 military personnel, police officials, medical workers, and federal experts whom will prepare and act out a real-life zombie disaster. In the exercise, participants will learn exactly how to respond to a worldwide pandemic, where people usually react similarly to zombies (i.e. violent, crazy, fearful).
There aren’t many details on the upcoming scenario, however, the Military Times noted that the zombies in the drill will not be real. The HALO Corporation isn’t the only company prepping for disaster with a zombie drill; earlier in the month, The Department of Homeland Security issued a statement saying, “The zombies are coming,” in effort to get people to prepare for disaster situations. The Center for Disease Control issued similar zombie statements as a fun way to bring attention to the issue.
Sure, it’s all fun and games until people actually start waking up from the dead and begin taking over our streets in search of food. If you laugh now, you will cry later. Take precautions and take the zombie apocalypse seriously–or you will get your face eaten off.
