The zombie apocalypse had been canceled in Quebec, Canada next week, Yahoo! News reported Thursday.
What is a zombie apocalypse? It is a zombie-themed training exercise for emergency responders.
Those who participated were supposed to pretend that there was a zombie attack. It was all planned as part of a civil security emergency training exercise.
The cancellation of the zombie apocalypse has left Quebec politicians to fend off ridicule. That story is here.
Why a zombie attack scenario?
The idea was to challenge emergency responders to handle a situation that they have never experienced to help them practice implementing new solutions to deal with new problems.
Why was zombie apocalypse cancelled?
Some in Quebec had complained that the simulated zombie attack amounted to wasteful spending. As a result of complaints, the new training scenario will simulate a flood. The flood training exercise is not expected to be substantially cheaper than the zombie apocalypse scenario, but officials said that the attention over the zombie attack detracted from the seriousness of the project.
