Zombies may have a tougher time taking over the world after a counterterrorism training program scheduled next month in San Diego.
MilitaryTimes.com on Sunday reported that California-based security firm HALO Corp. will incorporate training to fight the undead during its Oct. 29 to Nov. 2 Counter-Terrorism Summit expected to draw 1,000 military personnel, law enforcement officials, medical experts and government workers to the 44-acre Paradise Point resort island in San Diego’s Mission Bay.
The company, founded by former special operations, national security and intelligence personnel, says its annual summit this year will include a realistic tactical training environment using “Hollywood magic” in live action demonstrations, realistic tactical training scenarios and classroom education.
Immersive Hollywood sets will include a Middle Eastern village and a pirates’ haven, MilitaryTimes.com reported.
The more than 30 courses range from border and maritime security to cyber terrorism and modern warfare, HALO says in its summit promotional material.
