FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Three Rivers Ambulance Authority Executive Director Gary Booher is moving up his retirement date to Oct. 1.
The move comes after a contentious meeting Tuesday night with the Fort Wayne City Council.
Booher’s email has an automatic reply with the retirement date and states that he will be on vacation and will be unavailable until that time. Booher was originally set to retire on Dec. 31 per the TRAA website.
His retirement comes after TRAA fined contractor PatientCare Logistics $575,000 in July for failing to comply with response time standards.
Booher has held the executive director title since Nov. 1989. TRAA was named Indiana’s ALS (Advanced Life Support) Provider of the Year in 2016, 2017 and 2019.
