Subject: Zombie Apocalypse Training: HALO Corp. To Train Military, Law Enforcement On Virus Outbreak
(HUFFINGTON POST)   The  U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is ready  for a zombie apocalypse.  Gun owners  got prepared  for a zombie apocalypse. Now, the military and law enforcement are getting ready. And next month, they’ll begin training. Security firm HALO Corp. announced yesterday that about 1,000 military personnel, police officials, medical experts and federal workers will learn the ins and outs of a zombie apocalypse, as part of an annual counter-terrorism summit , according to the Military Times.

Sure, the lesson is tongue-in-cheek — and only a small part of the summit’s more serious course load — but a zombie-like virus outbreak is a good training scenario. Visitors will learn to deal with a worldwide pandemic, where people become crazy, violent and fearful. Zombies will roam the summit grounds in San Diego, Calif. harassing troops and first-aid teams that will be participating.

Further details are unclear, but the Military Times made sure to note that zombies are not real.

The training comes at a time when the term “zombie apocalypse” is so viral that several branches of government have released statements on the matter. Earlier this month, the Department of Homeland Security reported that “the zombies are coming” as part of a hilarious bid to get citizens to prepare for a real disaster.
