GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - A new chief will take over the Glendale Fire Department in November.

Terry Garrison will manage a department with a $47.6 million budget, nearly 250 firefighters and 34 civilian employees. The department operates nine fire stations across Glendale that respond to about 40,000 calls a year.

Garrison has served as fire chief in Houston, Texas, and Oceanside, California, and interim fire chief for the Daisy Mountain Fire District in Arizona. Before that, he worked 30 years for the Phoenix Fire Department.

He was appointed to take over as fire chief in Glendale after a nationwide search. He will be paid $170,000 a year.

Garrison has a bachelor’s degree in fire science management and a master’s degree in educational leadership.
