Oti: Regional command of the GNFS launches fire safety week.

As part of the week-long celebration of this year's fire safety week in the Oti Region, the Regional Headquaters of the Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) in collaboration with the Dambai Municipal Fire station has launched its fire safety week celebration with public sensitization exercises on the theme, "Safer Environment, Key to Investment". 
In attendance at the launch were the Regional Fire Commander, ACFO1 Dora Kwafo, Dambai Municipal Fire Commander, ADO1 Victor Kudoadzi, Heads of Departments, Senior as well as Junior Rank Officers stationed at the regional headquaters.
Places and identifiable groups visited by the officers for the fire safety sensitization campaign were the boat owners at the Dambai lake side, the ferry workers and passengers, shops, food joints, market centres and the Dambai main station or lorry park.
The team sensitized the populace not only on the need to be safety conscious or oriented but also collaborate with the GNFS in making sure that fire and its related incidents are minimized in the region. 
A similar activity also took place at the Krachi West District capital of Kete Krachi.

Leading the team for this launch were the Krachi West Municipal Fire Officer (MFO), ADOI Anthony Dormah, Municipal Fire Safety Officer, Subordinate Officer (Sub/O) Joseph Teye Tuwor as well as other personnel of the station.
The Officers cautioned the boat owners and operators to provide live jackets for passengers when ferrying them across the Volta Lake to the other banks of the river. They should also not overload their boats. 

The Officers advised the boat operators not only to critically observe the weather at the start of their trips but also adhere to the directives of the Navy detachment in the area so as to avert boat disasters during bad weather conditions.

The Officers used the opportunity to invite the general public to fully participate in the series of activities earmarked for the week-long celebration which would be climaxed in a grand style on Thursday, 3rd June, 2022.
