Military to Get Training for the Zombie Apocalypse


This is how it starts, people. Or, if I was writing my own zombie horror story, this is how it would start. First the CDC, then Homeland Security, and now private security companies are training. Admittedly, it’s meant as a joke, just a little break to lighten up a dull summit, but this is how it starts.

Private security firm HALO corp announced it will be holding zombie readiness training as part of next month’s counter-terrorism summit.  HALO is not the only part of the U.S. government getting ready to fight the war against the undead. The CDC has an entire section of their website dedicated to preparedness, and a comic book. The CDC Director Dr. Ali Khan has this advice, "If you are generally well equipped to deal with a zombie apocalypse you will be prepared for a hurricane, pandemic, earthquake, or terrorist attack.”

The Department of Homeland Security asked citizens to prepare for the zombie outbreak as part of a public health campaign. Sure, it’s all meant for a laugh, but one can’t help but wonder if the White House is currently storing water and fire arms in their zombie bunker.

How will you prepare for a zombie outbreak?
