Central Region: Fire Service records 23% reduction in fire outbreaks in first quarter of 2024

The Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) has achieved a significant milestone in reducing fire outbreaks in the Central Region.

According to Assistant Chief Fire Officer (ACFO I) John Amarlai Amartey, the service has reduced fire outbreaks by 23% in the first quarter of this year compared to last year.

ACFO I Amartey made this revelation during the commemoration of International Fire Fighters’ Day in Cape Coast, where he led his team to mark the occasion. He attributed the significant reduction to the persistent education and awareness campaigns conducted by the service in the region.

“We have been able to reduce fire outbreaks by 23% in the first quarter of this year, as compared to last year’s record”

“This was as a result of persistent education by the service in the region”

The GNFS has been working tirelessly to educate the public on fire safety and prevention, and it appears its efforts are yielding positive results. The 23% reduction in fire outbreaks is a testament to the service’s dedication and commitment to protecting lives and properties.

ACFO I Amartey commended his team for their hard work and urged the public to continue supporting the GNFS in its efforts to prevent fire outbreaks. He also emphasized the need for continued education and awareness to sustain the gains made so far.

The International Fire Fighters’ Day commemoration was marked with a parade, drills, and a lecture on fire safety and prevention. The event brought together fire personnel who went around the shops and offices in the Cape Coast Municipality to sensitize the residents on fire safety.
