I WAS one of more than 2000 people evacuated to the oak dale school by chopper.

I often heard how people were doing it tough at AgroTrend but do your readers know we had just as many evacuees with far less food, medical or support?

I watched in awe when the police and ambulance co-ordinated a fleet of choppers - sometimes landing six at a time on the school oval - trying to get all the sick and elderly out while a bunch of ferals continually gave them a hard time expecting them to chopper in cigarettes.

It was like a war zone and the five cops and two ambos did the same job as their counterparts at AgroTrend who had 50 times the support.
