Maine Communities Prepare For Zombie Apocalypse With Training Session!

Recent events that have transpired in Florida have people scared. Very scared.

After invading pop culture, zombies are slowly, but surely invading the nightmares of people across the country. In fact, some folks in Eastern Maine are already preparing for the possibility of an actual zombie apocalypse.

A group of first responders and emergency agencies from eight communities in the area met earlier this week to simulate a mock zombie virus outbreak.

The light-hearted pandemic preparedness training sesh (above) walked citizens through what they should do in the event of an emergency outbreak. Participants admitted zombies aren’t real (yet), but they are relating the message to previous real-life outbreaks of the H1N1 virus in 2009 and the SARS outbreak in 2002.

Some may be laughing at the idea, but we think it’s better to be safe than sorry! After all, we’ve been taking survival notes from zombie movies since the first time we saw George A. Romero‘s Night of the Living Dead!
