Based on Hawaii's experience with listening to the government broadcast and literally driving into the fire and their ultimate deaths as a result, I think many people would treat the government recommendation with the same level of trust that the government earned after, "two weeks to flatten the curve."Government Evacuation Plan for Weekday Working Hours Emergency:
Everyone leaves home or work in their cars driving calmly on designated routes to shelters carrying with them those without cars. School children are taken to shelters by school buses and reunited with parents.
Citizens Evacuation plan for weekday working hours emergency:
All parents jump in their cars and drive directly to schools to grab their kids. F the gov'ment plan. There are massive traffic jams in streets around all schools making roads impassible and blocking the exit of school buses. Some kids are rescued by their parents walking from cars deserted in stalled traffic and grabbing their kids from classrooms or bus areas. But now they have to walk out since streets are jammed. Other kids simply slip quietly away, leave school on foot or by bike, and head for home. A few buses that managed to leave before the onslaught of parents blocked the roads around the schools make it to the designated area and deliver kids. No arrangements have been made as to exactly how to reunite parents and children among crowds of thousands of refuges. Even where both parents and kids are in the shelter they never find each other for the duration of the emergency. The kids do fine. They are temporarily adopted by any family they know or by strangers. Some of the bigger kids have an outrageously good time just hanging around with each other. Most people don't evacuate at all. They figure they would rather stay home and protect their property from looters than get stuck in a traffic jam somewhere far from either home or designated shelters.
