Washington (CNN) -- Never fear the night of the living dead -- the Pentagon has got you covered.

From responses to natural disasters to a catastrophic attack on the homeland, the U.S. military has a plan of action ready to go if either incident occurs.

It has also devised an elaborate plan should a zombie apocalypse befall the country, according to a Defense Department document obtained by CNN.

In an unclassified document titled "CONOP 8888," officials from U.S. Strategic Command used the specter of a planet-wide attack by the walking dead as a training template for how to plan for real-life, large-scale operations, emergencies and catastrophes.

And the Pentagon says there's a reasonable explanation.

"The document is identified as a training tool used in an in-house training exercise where students learn about the basic concepts of military plans and order development through a fictional training scenario," Navy Capt. Pamela Kunze, a spokeswoman for U.S. Strategic Command, told CNN. "This document is not a U.S. Strategic Command plan."

Nevertheless, the preparation and thoroughness exhibited by the Pentagon for how to prepare for a scenario in which Americans are about to be overrun by flesh-eating invaders is quite impressive.

Read the Pentagon's Zombie apocalypse plan

A wide variety of different zombies, each brandishing their own lethal threats, are possible to confront and should be planned for, according to the document.

Zombies on the run!

Zombie life forms "created via some form of occult experimentation in what might otherwise be referred to as 'evil magic,' to vegetarian zombies that pose no threat to humans due to their exclusive consumption of vegetation, to zombie life forms created after an organism is infected with a high dose of radiation are among the invaders the document outlines."

Every phase of the operation from conducting general zombie awareness training, and recalling all military personnel to their duty stations, to deploying reconnaissance teams to ascertain the general safety of the environment to restoring civil authority after the zombie threat has been neutralized are discussed.

And the rules of engagement with the zombies are clearly spelled out within the document.

"The only assumed way to effectively cause causalities to the zombie ranks by tactical force is the concentration of all firepower to the head, specifically the brain," the plan reads. "The only way to ensure a zombie is 'dead' is to burn the zombie corpse."

There are even contingency plans for how to deal with hospitals and other medical facilities infiltrated by zombies, and the possible deployment of remote controlled robots to man critical infrastructure points such as power stations if the zombie threat becomes too much.

A chain of command from the President on down along with the roles to be played by the State Department and the intelligence community for dealing with the zombie apocalypse are clearly spelled out in the document.

'Walking Dead' finale: The biggest reveals

The training document was first reported by Foreign Policy magazine.

This is also not the first time zombies have been used as the antagonist in U.S. government training operations. Both the Centers for Disease Control and the Department of Homeland Security have used the creatures as a vehicle for training their personnel in the past.

Defense officials stress the report in no way signals an invasion of zombies is on the horizon. The only real purpose of the document was to practice how to execute a plan for handling something as large and serious a situation like flesh-eating beings trying to overrun the United States.

And why zombies?

Officials familiar with the planning of it say zombies were chosen precisely because of the outlandish nature of the attack premise.

"Training examples for plans must accommodate the political fallout that occurs if the general public mistakenly believes that a fictional training scenario is actually a real plan," the document says. "Rather than risk such an outcome by teaching our augmentees using the fictional 'Tunisia' or 'Nigeria' scenarios used at (Joint Combined Warfighting School), we elected to use a completely impossible scenario that could never be mistaken as a real plan."

So, practice for the when, where and how to plan for a more likely disaster scenario? Yes. But zombies of all stripes would be well advised to take note of this directive to Strategic Command personnel buried within the document.

"Maintain emergency plans to employ nuclear weapons within (the continental United States) to eradicate zombie hordes."

So tell me why in the hell does the Department of Defense have a Zombie Battle Plan if according to Government Officials say that a Zombie Outbreak is not possible???

The government can say a zombie outbreak is not possible. but if it were not possible. then why make a battle plan for them?

I read this over the other night. The way they intend to handle a zombie uprising is no different then if we as a nation revolted. And with this being so. It would be no damn wonder the world would go from normal to total shit storm so fast. Because if all governments around the world take the same approach. We're FUCKED!!! LOL.

Pretty much

i mean what the hell??? tear gas? rubber bullets? crowd control tactics? thats only going to add a lot of good soldiers to the zombie ranks. i agree with Forest Gump's words when it comes to government.


lol. and that so applies to any government that would handle zombies as rioters.

Zombie have to be treated as a whole different kind of threat. "The Undead" kind of threat.
Exactly. These things don't exactly breath. So agents like tear gas are useless. They don't respond to pain. So rubber bullets and bean bag rounds are pointless. They will either be feeding the undead or adding to the ranks.

   Well, its all politics...Those who are the most dumbest hold public offices so they can spread their stupidity...Instead of treating them like rioters, treat them like the real threat in which they are...OOOH, wait, that would mean that the government would actually have to admit that this kind of biological threat could and might become real...They can't let 90 percent of Americans know that they have secretly fund projects that would actually or could actually bring the zombie threat into public eye...Because that would mean that their little place in society would and will be lost and those like us common folk will be reigning over them...

   That is why I say all lawyers, judges, politicians, alcoholics, druggies (including dealers) and lets not forget those I don't like just by looking at them, will be used only as zombie bait...

In my opinion. They kinda confirmed it when the guy in Florida ate another guys face and the government yelled bath salts.
They won't be yelling bath salt when they are banging at the front door.

Bath Salts my ass...(LOL)  The fucker got a hold of some contaiminated form of some drug that was made from their stolen biological equipment...

   Which from what I understand, they still haven't found the equipment...But you never heard anything about that happening before the Miami Attack....

Where did you get the information? I am interested in knowing about cover-ups!

the info on the stolen trucks came out not to long after the florida attack. it came out after there were a couple of schools closed down and hazmzts called to decontaminate them. they both had the same symptoms on both students and faculty. the trucks contained lab machinery that was used for testing. things like a very powerful micro scope, sterilizing machines and some that had to do with bacterial culturing. the truck was stolen right by the loading dock after loading the equipment was done. the truck was stolen just before the attach happened. a week before if amemory serves me right. plenty of time for the thieves to be contaminated and spread it around. and Jessie, your right. they never found the truck. and if they did. i dont think they said anything about it. it was after the truck came out that CDC started doing damage control blaming bath salts for it.and as they were doing that. all the stories were being pulled down from the internet right down to any revealing videos showing the attack, the officers statements and reports filed, and the eye wittness statements both written and on video. total media and wittness sanitization. and another point of order. the attacked homeless man. he survived his attack. but any reports on him have also gone poof. along with him. never to be heard from again. at least to my knowledge.

Stopping IN

It's been awhile since I have been home here on Wicked Zombies...I've been doing so much searching within this outer world of life...

   I've since gotten re-married and have been working back in security for the last couple of years. Have started back writing again and have purchased an actual house. It's hard being away from my family even though I need to work and support them, but it's a shame a person has to work so much that they miss their kids growing up...
