    We pay you public servants
    you never paid me....
    and its my opinion that you are paid too well
    im sure that whatever you do you are overpaid too.....
    i especially don't like it when you start ordering Taxpayers about
    you must have me mixed up with someone else....i never "ordered" anyone about...
    Government people will generally do anything for the money Harry
    like that makes them so much different than civilian people....

    Issuing a "mandatory" evacuation removes federal/state/city liability for harm to folks who don't abide by it. AKA peeps won't be able to sue for the gov not getting them out, not rescuing them, etc., JS

    Related - What Does Mandatory Evacuation Mean? And What Happens If I Ignore It? | The Weather Channel

    Mandatory evacuations have been ordered in several states in advance of the deadly Hurricane Matthew. But what does that mean?

    Emergency management officials use a mandatory evacuation as a protective action in certain emergencies to help save the lives of residents and first responders.


    Upon receiving a mandatory evacuation order, you should leave as quickly as possible. Evacuation routes become severely congested during evacuations. Decrease the amount of time you spend in traffic by leaving sooner than later.

    Officials are not likely to order the mass arrest of residents who refuse to heed a mandatory evacuation order, according to the University of North Carolina's School of Law. But this does not mean that mandatory evacuation orders should be ignored.

    Those who ignore mandatory evacuation orders should be prepared to be self-sufficient for the first 72 hours after a storm.

    Utilities – electricity, water and phone service – could be damaged and unavailable for extended periods of time, and high winds and water could isolate those residents for long periods of time.

    In addition, public safety officials will not risk lives to respond to emergency calls in mandatory evacuation areas during the storm.

    I have no idea. I chose not to join, choosing instead to marry and start a family, I took a well paying job in aerospace. That was, Christ, about 30 years ago...
