Real-Life 'Walking Dead'? Security Firm Schedules Zombie Crisis Scenario Military Times

A security firm might be taking a page from the television show "The Walking Dead": HALO Corp. is planning a zombie crisis scenario at a 44-acre resort in San Diego, reports MilitaryTimes.com.

The company will hold a five-day event, using "immersive Hollywood sets including a Middle Eastern village and a pirates’ haven," according to the story. Brad Barker, the president of HALO, is calling the summit the "Zombie Apocalypse," the piece reports.

The Oct. 30-Nov. 2 event is "very whimsical,” Barker notes. The use of zombies is a way to highlight that responders need to be ready for anything, the piece explains.

Zombies will harass troops and other participants. HALO declined to disclose details, however. "They are going to see a lot of stuff go down,” Barker said. “It is a Hollywood production.”
