In such a setting, it is entirely within the realm of possibility that someone in command may simply decide on a proverbial triage that sacrifices some of the general population as being expendable. Obviously, announcing this would lead to civil unrest, so don't bet on knowing they are leaving until they are already gone. My advice would be to keep a close watch in such a situation, so that you may be able to read the subtext of what is really happening behind closed doors that they aren't necessarily telling you. At that point, it's up to you to use your instincts to try to ensure the survival of yourself and your family and friends.
We must also prepare for the fact that some of our fellow survivors are going to adopt a philosophy of complete selfishness with respect to staying alive. Such people will only help others if it is somehow of benefit to themselves, performing cold mental assessments as to the value added equation of every action. Never doubt that these kind of people will do anything if it ensures their own survival, even if doing so means endangering yours or even taking from you and yours. And, truthfully, I imagine there will be more of those than we would like to admit, because striving for survival at any cost is a very powerful part of our inborn instinctual makeup. Some, of course, will maintain more of their humanity and try to help others; but people like this will be the minority.
