National Zombie Apocalypse Training Drill TODAY
It’s always lingered in the back of your mind … or you could even constantly ask yourself: What would the nation’s authorities do in the event of a REAL zombie apocalypse? It seems in practically EVERY zombie movie or TV series that NO ONE has EVER watched a zombie movie – it always takes a while, and the deaths of a few compatriots, to learn that the only way to kill the walking dead is with a head shot.
‘Zombie Apocalypse’ Training Drill Organized By Halo Corp. For Military, Police Set For Oct. 31 In San Diego
SAN DIEGO — Move over vampires, goblins and haunted houses, this kind of Halloween terror aims to shake up even the toughest warriors: An untold number of so-called zombies are coming to a counterterrorism summit attended by hundreds of Marines, Navy special ops, soldiers, police, firefighters and others to prepare them for their worst nightmares.
“This is a very real exercise, this is not some type of big costume party,” said Brad Barker, president of Halo Corp, a security firm hosting the Oct. 31 training demonstration during the summit at a 44-acre Paradise Point Resort island on a San Diego bay. “Everything that will be simulated at this event has already happened, it just hasn’t happened all at once on the same night. But the training is very real, it just happens to be the bad guys we’re having a little fun with.”
Hundreds of military, law enforcement and medical personnel will observe the Hollywood-style production of a zombie attack as part of their emergency response training.
Of course, in real life, that is no doubt very low on the lawman’s checklist of stopping a suspect (and thank goodness for that!) On October 31, 2012, a Zombie Apocalypse Training Drill is being held in San Diego. That brings several questions to mind:
*Will the Marines know to aim for the head?
*Will the zombies be fast, slow or a mixed group?
*Will there be a T-shirt?
