In March of 2015, a proposal was put forth by the Firefighter Union, the OPFFA, calling on the MOHLTC to approve the issuance of symptom relief medications by firefighters. The issue has been met with resistance from not only the Paramedic Industry, but also the Association of Municipalities of Ontario, (AMO).

Paramedic unions and associations alike are united in opposing this reckless promotion by the OPFFA, in what appears to be a manouver to secure their own employment at the expense of not only the taxpayers and paramedics, but more importantly, the patients
