“If a patient is on a tertiary road that hasn’t been plowed the ambulance will park down the block so it doesn’t get stuck. The crew has top walk all the way down the block, long distance to bring patient back and can used the sked to get over the snow,” Pistilli said.
And as for all those cars that got stuck in the snow last time, stopping plows and first responders, the mayor’s message is fuhgeddaboudit. He’s got a plow task force that will tow your car out, at your own expense, of course.
All that said, the mayor still has one big worry.
“My biggest concern is that people go out, walk, slip, fall into traffic with low visibility, and high winds that somebody turns a corner and the car doesn’t see a pedestrian,” Bloomberg said.
The mayor had some good news for drivers. He said there’s no gas shortage, so there’s no need for drivers to line up to get extra fuel.
