Houston's new fire chief officially named

HOUSTON Earlier this morning, the Houston City Council approved Terry Garrison as the new fire chief for the City of Houston. Garrison was accompanied by his wife Annette, as well as the entire command staff of the fire department. The new fire chief spent the majority of his career rising through the ranks of the Phoenix Fire Department.

Chief Garrison says while he is pleased with the way the fire department fights fires, he would like to improve safety procedures. The fire chief says he also plans on improving the recruitment of women, as well as relationships with the community.
