The recent fire outbreaks in some markets in the Kumasi metropolis have become a source of worry to the Ashanti Regional Security Council.
This has compelled the security agencies; the Ghana National Fire Service to mount 24-hour surveillance in markets and other installations across the region.
“Let us pay very critical attention to our markets and national installations since they could be targets for fires. In this regard I have directed all Assemblies to make available spaces for the fire service to ensure that the markets are monitored day and night”, Ashanti Regional Minister, Osei-Mensah charged.
The Chairman of the Regional Security Council Chairman disclosed at a meeting organized by the Regional Coordinating Council (RCC) on Thursday (21 December):
“Defaulting Assemblies will [have to] explain to the Council why the default for necessary action”, he warned.
“The advent of the harmattan is noted for its attendant fire outbreaks. The collaboration between the National Commission for Civic Education, the Information Services Department, and the Ghana National Fire Service to educate our people on best preventive, as well as fire-preventing measures to save lives and properties is very critical.”
