Bloomberg on Fire and Scheduling

Here was the explanation Mike Bloomberg gave on his radio show this morning about his decision to go to Florida after a fire that claimed nine victims:

“This city, there’s a lot of things to do at the same time. And I know some people say ‘You should stop everything.’ But you know, you have to do them all. When you’re scheduling, if at all possible, there are times you cancel. But I made sure everybody was there doing what was right. And that’s, you know, on to the next.”

That’s following a less elaborate explanation yesterday.

Bloomberg is in the Bronx right now making a fire safety announcement.
