I'm a commuter and charter bus driver who lives on the jersey shore. I'm in NYC many times a day. Since 911, I learned some things about the scope of such a disaster. One of the most concerning things for me is how to get back to new jersey to tend to my wife who is disabled. When 911 happened, there was no good way out of manhatten. The tunnels and bridges were closed. Everyone in the whole city of millions of people were trying to get out of the city. They relied on the small amount of ferries to make an exit. This took days to be achieved. Even when the tunnels and bridges were reopened you had to go through security check points for every vehicle. The only people I saw get out quickly are the people downtown by wall st who had private boats that came and picked them up. I'm sure that was no easy task either. I would love to hear suggestions on what you would do in such a situation. I'm completely open for suggestions due to to the fact that a similar situation can easily happen again. Thank you for all responces!
