Zombie Attack Coming to West Virginia

Recommended Posts

Hum    6,933

Officials with the Berkeley County Health Department say they're hoping the dead will rise in Eastern Panhandle this summer.

Department Nurse Supervisor Vicki Greenfield says they'll be having a little fun with a required threat preparedness training drill by staging a mock zombie attack at South Middle School in June.

Greenfield tells MetroNews Affiliate WEPM Radio they've held similar training sessions based on a terror attacks and an outbreak of the bird flu in past years.

Up to now, though, Greenfield says they have not been able to draw out enough volunteers to really see what those with the Berkeley County Health Department can do.

"In the past, we've had, maybe, 50 to 100 people show up. That really doesn't test our ability when have over a 100,000 population," she said.

This time, Greenfield says they're hoping more people will get involved because they're looking for zombies, zombie hunters or even victims for the event.

"We'd like to just be bombarded by people that day and really be stressed so that we know what we need to do to change. It's our only way to really create a situation and plan for something that could happen."

Prizes will be given for the best costumes during the event and information will also be provided on how to prepare for a potential epidemic.

The mock zombie attack will start at 10 a.m. on Friday, June 8th at South Middle School.

With what happened in Miami this seems like really bad timing. A lot of people are upset already about all the zombie jokes.

Not just Miami. Some guy in Maryland was eating heart and brains from a guy he killed this week. Another guy in New Jersey apparently ripped his torso open and was flinging bits of intestine at the cops.

WTF is going on with this world?

it's always nutty going to Bayside down in Miami... that's right near where the guy got his face chewed off, there used to be a Camillus House a block or two away, but i think it's closed, so less homeless people to eat

Zombie attacks shown in movie and in novel suggest mass attack not isolation cannibalization incident.. Also most of the zombi attack's are actually result of some viral out break as per modern movies so wont it be better if drills are shown on how actually prevent viral out break and such ??

I thought the spoon was for the heart, because it hurts more
