In an interview, Pasos Catzín confirmed that he was fired without warning. “A secretary calls me and tells me it’s my last day of service in the Cozumel Fire Department. And when I said that I have to talk to the director, they replied that it does not work that way.” Those were the statements of the man who had 28 years of uninterrupted service in the corporation.

After learning about the commander’s dismissal, the firemen declared themselves on strike. While the former fire department chief declared that if they want to name someone else Chief, it´s OK, he only asks for the respective compensation he deserves by law.
