Larry said "pull" as in "pull" the emergency personnel from the building and stop fighting the fire IMO. he was talking about all the people who died, so they just pulled the firefighters off building 7.
This is what Larry said as a later explanation. Can anyone show where this was corroborated by the fire department? I don't believe for a second he meant "pull" the detonators of pre-rigged explosives and that he simply made an unfortunate choice of words, but I do wonder why the fire department would care much what any civilian thought they should or shouldn't do concerning the lives of their men. Also, there was no one in the building at that time. They were not fighting the fires so why would they need to pull anybody?
Around 1230PM the incident commanders reacting to reports from crews searching WTC 7 ordered everyone out. This is the infamous "PULL" so beloved by truthers

6 Months after 9/11 went to seminar given by FDNY on operations at the WTC. Listened as the incident commanders
described operations in WTC towers and at WTC 7
Also know several people who worked in WTC 7 and were there that day.
WTC 7 was evacuated following aircraft impact into the North Tower. At that time (8:45 AM) many people had not arrived Port Authority, who run PATH Commuter trains into NYC including station under WTC, shut down the trains keeping thousands back in NJ. Those already in WTC 7 were evacuated. WTC 7 was cleared by 9:30 AM.
When WTC towers came down, especially WTC 1 (North Tower) which inflicted severe damage to south side of the
building, the collapse cut the water mains to the area.
At around 1100AM , FDNY despite hundreds of responders dead or missing and dozens of apparatus destroyed made an
attempt on WTC 7. If read accounts by FIREHOUSE magazine find that crews were forced to scavenge damaged fire trucks for equipment (Hose, tools, SCBA). Others report low water pressure with hose streams.
Entering WTC 7 found severe structural damage to building, standpipe systems in building were dry - no water available
inside building to fight fires. Crews reported fires on multiple floors from burning debris from WTC 1. Fires which were small, but without water quickly began spreading.
Around 1230PM the incident commanders reacting to reports from crews searching WTC 7 ordered everyone out.

A surveyors transit arrived with collapse unit from Rescue 3 - transit was set up and locked in position on corner of building . By 2PM could see bulge on SW corner of WTC 7, bulge grew to 3 stories. 230PM transit showed building was
moving out of plumb. Collapse of WTC 7 was anticipated do to spreading fires and structural damage.
3PM - Collapse zone established around WTC 7. Collapse zone is 1.5 height of building, WTC 7 was 47 floors, 610 feet
Zone was over 900 ft. Crews working in neighboting building (World Financial Center, WTC debris pile ) were ordered out
of the area. Took until around 5PM to get everyone and remaining fire apparatus clear
WTC 7 came down at 5:20 PM severely damaging adjacent Verizon Building (140 West) and crushing Fiterman Hall
(30 West Broadway), building of Manhattan Community College , across Barclay St (4 lane highway) from WTC 7
