We'll be honest: the idea of a zombie apocalypse frightens us a bit.
While it's the stuff of horror movies, comic books and TV shows - the idea of society collapsing due to people turning into undead mindless cannibals seems to be something that's getting more and more consideration as a very real possibility.
In fact, just last year the CDC published a tongue-in-cheek zombie apocalypse preparedness guide to get people thinking about real-life emergency readiness. And now, there's HALO Corp.'s annual Counter-Terrorism Summit (held in San Diego from Oct. 30 to Nov. 2).
The summit, which provides hands-on training for more than 1,000 members of various military, law enforcement and emergency response agencies, will take over the entire Paradise Point resort with an assortment of simulated scenarios utilizing sets, actors and special effects – all for training purposes. The situations will include hypothetical training conditions, like a hostage situation in a hospital, rescuing a pilot behind enemy lines ... and a zombie apocalypse.
OK, so maybe it's more like a lighthearted way to break the tension from all the serious training and celebrate Halloween, which happens to be in the middle of the conference.
But, as we like to say, if you're prepared for the zombie apocalypse, then you'll probably be ready for anything.
