It seems like every day the world is taking the possibility of a zombie apocalypse more and more seriously.
The security firm HALO Corp, which already sounds like something out of zombie fiction, announced it will conduct zombie-apocalypse training exercises for about 1,000 military personnel, police officials, medical experts, and federal workers during an annual counter-terrorism summit. The scenario, as reported by Military Times, will even include immersive Hollywood sets and zombies roaming an island, harassing troops and medical responders. The Military Times does point out the zombies are not real.
Though obviously tongue-in-cheek and part of a larger, more serious course load, the exercise does present interesting situations and challenges for personnel involved.
Zombie apocalypses seem to gaining traction, with the CDC and the Department of Homeland Security having both released hypothetical guides to surviving zombie attacks in the last year. Which has to make you wonder if our government has been infiltrated by zombies.
