The Clinton Township Board of Trustees approved John Gallagher as the township’s new fire chief at its March 18 meeting. Gallagher will take over for Tim Duncan. “He will be a great chief. We’re looking forward to it,” said Township Supervisor Robert Cannon at the meeting. Duncan agreed. “I’ve known John for his whole career,” Duncan said in an interview following the meeting. “Guy’s got a great heart, puts a lot of effort into the department.” Gallagher was one of three potential candidates for the job. He has served with the township for 19 years in various roles. Gallagher started off as a paramedic. He eventually became the EMS chief, a role he’s been in for the past seven years. “That role allowed me to really blossom out, to work with the county and with the local medical control authority Medstar,” Gallagher said in an interview following the meeting.
