WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - The Sedgwick County Commission and former EMS Director John Gallagher have accepted a mutually agreed settlement to accept Gallagher’s resignation.

The settlement will pay Gallagher four and a half months of his salary – $85,177.85.

His resignation is effective immediately.

This comes after multiple employee complaints and other issues about response times.

County Manager Tom Stolz said the main goal is to stabilize and rebuild morale in the EMS department.

Deputy EMS Director Paul Misasi and EMS Colonel Bill Robben will manage the EMS Department until an interim director is named by the end of next week.
