    Sounds like a completely useless waste of money.

       It’s not really about zombies, it’s about a pandemic.   It makes no difference if you want to call the problem zombies, Capt. Trips (as in The Stand) or a new form of the plague.  The point is a highly contagious disease that spreads faster then it can be contained.  How do all the various public service agencies respond to that sort of thing?  Thus the reason for this exercise.

        Well it does. First off everyone know there is no cure for Zombies you have to shoot them in the head. Thus the whole exercise was pointless. Now if they had responded with say paintball or squibs and taken out the infected via head shots then you would have had some training. As it stands the way the scenario ran you would have simply made more zombies for us up here to take care of when they head this way looking for brains to eat as the heads down that way where not very filling as they did not even know enough to stay away form the zombie hoards!!!  A zombie comes up my driveway he will get a 50bmg to the head a full 300 yards before reaching my door! Are you ready? I am…

        • You do know zombies are not real, correct?

          •  And neither was this ‘training exercise’!

             Kind of the POINT but I guess you missed that……

          • Well your entire gotta shot them in the head rant. Some folks truly think zombies are real.

            Hey we do not have any right NOW that we know of but  if they do show up I am ready.. I have 12 silver bullets in live rounds for my .357 just in case one never knows what may happen.

      why is getting all of these emergency responders/managers and facilities working together for disaster preparedness a useless waste of money?? it’s only a matter of time before these same groups of people will be working together to ensure the saftey of the public and protection of our properties. yea the theme seems a little much, however it’s the same idea as if a virus outbreak or anyother epidemic happens. they will all still have to work together, they will all have to share resources, and they will all have to call in support from out side their normal comfort zone… I for one and am all for this. i’d rather them be well prepared rather than “shooting in the dark” per say.

    • i agree 100%

    Sounds like our government is planning a attack on it’s own people

      Zombies are going to board the UFOs and leave area 51 in the near future to attack us.

    I never understood the zombie apocalypse theme…

    The answer to a Zombie Apocalypse is vaccinated zombies.  I didn’t say cure, I said “answer.”  You’d better think twice before you get that jab when the outbreak hits because there’s no telling what kind of witches brew the vaccine will be made of.

    Sure – I get the fun of a little whimsey now and then.  But really?  Some foolish zombie scenario?

  • Anonymous

    Seriously, I think we can find better ways spend tax money to train first responders than playing zombie warrior. Lets prepare for real pandemics.

  • What!!??

     everyone knows you have to shoot zombies in the head.  there, now you know how to survive an attack.

    Are they preparing to spray us with monkey dust or what?

    Is it me or have we collectivley lost our ability to laugh at ourselevs and have a little fun? People just seem so angry on  here. The Zombie drill was good planning and checking of resources – what’s it matter if they had a little fun while doing it? If/when disaster strikes, you naysayers will be glad these folks were training to save your bacon …

    I don’t see it as a waste of time. Granted its a little silly but it prepares people to deal with a highly contageous pathogen. Fact is that if a true pandemic were to hit we’d all be in big trouble.

  • Anonymous

     Who care what “disease” they used to portray in the use of the pandemic training.
     These training exercise rely on volunteers to play victims all day, I bet it was a whole lot easier to fill the seats with zombies then plague victims.

  • So many zombies, so little ammunition!

    As an older person , I am trying to access when I might be attacked by a zombie . My thoughts are that being hit by lightning would be much higher on my list . I retracked, someone on bath salts could possible be the zombie that would be my downfall.

  • Phil Blank

    Wait until they start mixing Bath Salts with LSD!
    Officers found a gummy bear mold along with ecstasy, bath salts, LSD, and prescription anxiety drugs in a car the three were riding in Tuesday.
