A company specializing in training military units, federal, and state agencies in security, force protection, emergency response,and disaster management, has a new threat incorporated into its disaster-crisis scenario, which is part of the firm’s annual counterterrorism summit in San Diego: a zombie attack

The far-fetched scenario of a government fighting a zombie-like threat has captured the attention of Brad Barker, president of security firm HALO Corp. In October Barker’s firm will incorporate zombies into a disaster-crisis scenario at the firm’s annual counterterrorism summit in San Diego.

The 5-day event will take place at the Paradise Point resort and will provide hands-on training, realistic demonstrations, lectures, and classes to more than 1,000 military personnel, law enforcement officials, medical experts, and state and federal government workers.

    The everyday Joe police officer is about 40 IBS over weight, can’t run a mile in less the ten mins and has about 30 hours of weapons training a year! let’s get real here. This is lastest and best training!?!? WTF we need to get back to basics.

    Sounds like something they need to prepare for if bama wins again. This country seems to be 47% clueless zombies looking for free handouts they didn’t earn, and I am sure if they don’t get it there is your violent population.

    OMG, we have sunk to a new low; fantasy is now running our lives. Do they realize they look like a bunch of jackasses?

    As the CDC has noted, the basics of disaster preparedness can be similar no matter the disaster. Having to train for a Zombie Apocalypse actually combines many disasters into one with an added stress factor of a bio-hazard and an incredibly violent population. Good stuff.
