The Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) has intensified its efforts to sensitize the public on fire safety tips to reduce fire outbreaks in the country. ACFO1 Mr James Ankrah, the Northern Regional Commander of the GNFS, has called on the public to strictly comply with fire safety tips to ensure the safety of lives and property.

According to Mr Ankrah, fighting fire outbreaks and protecting lives and property were a shared responsibility. He stressed that the public must make a conscious effort to be fire-safety conscious at all times. The fire safety walk organized by the GNFS through some principal streets of Tamale was aimed at sensitizing residents to adhere to fire safety tips and regulations to ensure fire cases were drastically reduced in the region.

As part of the sensitization campaign, personnel of the GNFS carried placards with various inscriptions on them. Some of the inscriptions on the placards included “Switch off and unplug all electrical appliances when not in use”, “Keep your gas cylinders outside the kitchen preferably in an open area” and “Do not overload your electrical sockets”.

For the most part, the GNFS is embarking on a series of sensitization campaigns to commemorate this year’s International Fire Fighters’ Day. Some of the activities include sporting activities, donations to the Tamale Children’s Home and the commissioning of the Saboba Fire Service Station.

It is essential for the public to adhere to fire safety tips and regulations to prevent fire outbreaks. The GNFS is playing its part by intensifying its efforts to sensitize the public on fire safety. It is the responsibility of every individual to ensure that their environment is fire-safe by following simple fire safety tips. Let us all join hands in the fight against fire outbreaks in our communities.
