BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- First responders and emergency agencies converged in Bangor to fend off the devastation of a zombie apocalypse. While there wasn't a real outbreak plaguing people, the gathering served as a training session on how to respond to an epidemic if one spread through Maine. In the mock situation, disease, chaos and the walking dead took over. While the zombie apocalypse wasn't real pandemics like the H1N1 virus in 2009 and the SARS outbreak in 2002 have proven to authorities they need to be prepared for anything. Eight communities from Eastern Maine participated in the training.


This whole zombie thing is getting out of control. They are training people on how to fend off zombie outbreaks? Maybe something? probably nothing....

"Zombie Apocolypse" is now a blanket term. It could stand for any of hundreds of situations.

yes but in this drill they staged the walking dead as part of the pandemic situation which is just a tad over the top for me. possible but largely improbable so why do it?

In my opinion, its two-fold:

1)IF (very big if) it did happen, people would SKEWER the CDC for not being prepared;

2)The walking dead in the scenario could represent any number of 'victims' in a biological attack. They could represent civil unrest. They could represent people infected with a highly contagious biological agent. Point being, just because, in the drill, they called them 'zombies', doesnt mean there isnt real life application for the drills.

Someone miscalculated the age of aquarius with the age of zombies.

Bad Mayan math or something.

On a serious note, some of the "zombie" attacks are pretty troubling. Given that the explanation concerns something that has been available for a few years now, it seems we have an "outbreak" of flesh biting, cannibalistic attacks only as of late...

It makes you wonder if someone is experimenting with a new substance or pathogen that causes this behaviour in humans, while the blame is shifted to something else.

All for Z day, when they release it into the water supply and BAM.

Zombie Nation.

It almost makes you wonder whether our government, or an entity within it, would be at a tactical advantage should its public not truly believe they're being attacked by something very similar to what we think of as zombies, when actually, they are.

Would it slow our response time?
Would more of the young survive it?
Would Cheney get to eat more of them?

It makes perfect sense to me that our Govt. might be referring to the regular citizens as zombies. I mean, they don't exactly call gun running by it's true name, [Fast&Furious], and use code words for absolutely everything else. Why not us
