Gloria Wright is no longer director of the Roane County ambulance department. She was informed about the county's desire to go in another direction on Monday.
"We asked Gloria to basically take a position lower than what she's at now," Roane County Executive Ron Woody said.
Woody said Office of Emergency Services Director Howie Rose and consultant Jack Jinks will manage the ambulance department on an interim basis.
"Until we do a search or determine exactly what we need to do," he said.
