HFD Chief Garrison decides not to resign
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Nearly two weeks after announcing he was resigning as chief of the Houston Fire Department, Terry Garrison has changed his plans and is staying on.
That news came from Houston Mayor Annise Parker this afternoon. Garrison had said that the health of his infant grandchild was his reason to move to Phoenix and step down from HFD. But now his entire family has decided to move to Houston.
"We initially felt Phoenix was the best place logistically to care for our grandson. However, shortly after submitting my resignation, there was a major change in his health care needs that makes Houston and the Texas Medical Center our best hope in moving Jack's health in a positive direction," said Chief Garrison in his letter to HFD members.
According to the mayor, Garrison's family will relocate to Houston in the next few months.
