Pittsburgh officials have denied the appeal of two paramedics disciplined in connection with the death of a Hazelwood man who died during a February snowstorm while waiting 30 hours for an ambulance.

Anthony Weinmann, president of the Fraternal Association of Professional Paramedics, Local No. 1, said the union plans to fight the denials. It will seek arbitration for Josie Dimon, an 11-year veteran fired as acting crew chief of the Medic 8 unit, and likely will seek arbitration for Kim Long, a 19-year veteran crew chief who was suspended for six days, Weinmann said.
