HOUSTON -

Chief Terry Garrison announced Tuesday he has reversed his decision to resign and will remain in his current position with the Houston Fire Department.

Two weeks ago, Chief Garrison announced his resignation, citing the need to be near his sick infant grandchild in Phoenix, Arizona.

"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. "I look forward to continuing as Fire Chief of this great city and I am comforted knowing that my family will be embraced in the same manner."

Garrison says his family will relocated to Houston in the next few months.
