First and foremost find a friend who will likely go to town hall, give them instructions to text message you a specific message in the even of BS being fed to them. Then text/call family and crew with whatever your pre-determined message is to have them go to a ready state, also include the time you are departing from the pool.

Make your way home or to a rally point by any means necessary. As people have said nighttime movement is key, another advantage is weather: when its dropping buckets of rain outside and generally cold guards will prefer to stick to shelter and warmth rather than roaming around in the weather.

Once you can meet up with others and get proper gear its time to gather as much intel as possible, contact those who you know went to the town hall meeting. If more than perhaps the first three to five people contacted do not answer or you go directly to voicemail assume the worst: they are either dead, imprisoned, dead phone batteries (not likely after contacting that many people) or cell jamming is being used. In any of those events things are looking bad and its time to evaluate how to escape the city or at least your known residence. Of course all of that depends on how much intel you can gather about the situation and the occupying forces.

* note * giving this information away wont impact my strategies at all because I have no younger sister and I always have gear with me no matter what.

An important aspect here would certainly be evasion but I think that the most important aspect would be preparedness. You, knowing what you are going to do. MY wife and I know exactly where we will go and what we will do at a time like this. I saw that some one in here mentioned that his "bug out bag" was always with him...Smart man he is !! I also always have my "bug out bag" with me at all times as my wife does as well and we have enough in each one of them (my wife also has one) that we can easily survive for a week to ten days. Make damned sure that you have a firearm...It includes all the necessities, which I choose not to go into here, that I would need for food, shelter, and sleep. I use these bags with regularity and they are always kept fresh and up to date. I have had these for around five years when I first became aware of the powers of some. That's all I will say about that here too but I think that most here get my drift.. I happen to live in and around a small city that I have lived in for a very long time ( I won't mention here how long) and I am more familiar with the surroundings than most of the citizens that live in the area. I used to hang out at a military base (which one I won't mention either) that has long since been closed that has many hiding places (at least temporarily) and that would probably be the last place to search for individuals. I think that I could easily make my way around to scrounge any thing that I could get my hands on without detection from a "newby" in the area. The state that I live in (which I will not mention here) has thousands of acres of thick forest and mountains and I can guarantee you I could stay out in long enough until things cleared, if they ever cleared at all. If they do not, the best you can do is stay away as long as you can survive. I am an avid backpacker and hiker and I am sure that some of those skills will also help us survive with some facsimile of sanity. Be ready, be afraid, and get mean if you have to, but do whatever you can to survive, and oh yeah, if you are near apprehension, fight to the death for your freedom that may be left...Hope that sheds some light...sabre11004

P.S. When in contact with friends and family don't make "new" plans to meet immediately because as strong as "numbers" can be, numbers will work against you in the early portion of this situation. As for the person that mentioned that he is not all that great at games...believe..this is no games...

Never, ever answer questions like this on a forum. Never.

Why give information to the enemy for free?

lol fair enough, but remember the story is not real and wont single anyone or town out, i have been reading posts on here for a while now but never posted anything so never signed up, the server logs will show that. and i am from New Zealand... NZ is a friend but not an ally of the US so you have nothing to worry about, we have the smallest army and navy in the world and we dont even have an air force. The army dont need spies asking questions on here (all though that it doesn't mean they dont), they would know that at least 3/4 the pop will follow their orders and 1/4 would panic, refuse or rebel.
If i still cant convince you then so be it. I dont blame you but remember whan your bugging out your going to come across many people that need help or can help you, the saying survival in numbers is a good one but if you have the same distrust in them then it wont work.

My first thought is ....... lack of information. Why are the Military taking over the town?

It would be no use running if the town was under a biological threat or the country has been invaded. These troops could be (and probably will be) in the town for a very legitimate reason. There could be an adverse natural phenomena about to hit the town and that the military are here to escort you to safety.

What I am trying to say is ....... dont blindly run until you know what you are running from or to. You could actually be running into the very thing that the military are here for.

Call me naive, but I actually trust my countrys military.

The last place I'd want to be under such circumstances is lumped in a crowd of thousands...particularly if it was a bio event

If, in this scenario, the crowd at the town-hall became unruly or otherwise, required warning shots to be fired, that would be enough to start a stampede.

When a crowd of thousands panic, deaths happen. Just look at events such as Hillsborough for what happens when the authorities (in this case the police) are outnumbered by civilians by dozens or even hundreds-to-one

Here's a thought...for those that choose to disregard the order and head for either their bug in/out location...could you take a couple of water-bottles full of the chlorinated pool-water for later use to 'clean' a source of drinking water?

Whats the average chlorine concentration of pool-water and how far could it be diluted to purify standing water found 'in the wild' to a level safe enough to drink?

I am well awaare of what large crowds of people can do and I agree it is something to be avoided if possible.

My answer was concerning the question of WHY where the military there? What is their purpose in being there?

IMO, running blindly from the swimming pool with a young sister in tow without having a clue why, is irresponsible and could be down right dangerous.

Good INTEL is the very key to your survival in this situation.

click your heels together three times while repeating over and over "theres no place like home" might help. lol. Seriously your prior intel and survival skills should never put you in scenarios like this. You are screwed eventually in situations like this.

This has been documented by scientists that mob mentality exists
and the mob whips each other into a frenzy.

Ppl on their own left to their own thoughts tend to make more level
headed choices most of the time if they are not idiots to beging with.

But in the reality of it all how different do you think the military would handle it? I too trust the military here but they only do what they are told, How much warning do you think we'll get if any? that is what worries me is the fact that I am preparing for the unknown.
The reason i added the 8 yr old sister is because although you are number one on the priority list there is always family to think about.

I grew up on a farm and have been a very keen hunter from a young age so i have an array of firearms and would be fine bugging out but i dont believe my little sister would be ok, if the cold doesn't get her exhaustion would.

I just wanted to see what people would do when caugth off guard, and i got many good replys... thank you

As people have said the key here would be evasion, personally I would try to go back into the swimming baths; wait until the commotion has died down inside and then make a move.

With regards to the sister I would try and play it like a game, "lets be quiet like hide and seek" sorta thing.

Agree with ringing everyone I knew and informing them, ring my other half and see where she is and tell her to get out now.

Possibly evade army and go to cash machine and withdraw as much as possible then it home and grab BOB?
