The meeting, however, regretted attitude of the PIMS administration for not even condoling deaths of two staffers who served the hospital for over two decades. They demanded of the PIMS administration to announce financial assistance for them.

The senior staffers also strongly condemned efforts to impose MTI law on staff of the PIMS and decided to strongly oppose the same. They also took strong notice of attempts of creating disunity among community of paramedics. “We will foil every effort to weaken our community and will soon call a meeting of the general body for future plan of action,” the declaration of the meeting said.
