Communication networks asked to assist GNFS

Dr.-Albert-Brown-Gaisie-Chief-Fire-Officer.-3Dr. Albert Brown Gaisie, the Chief Fire Officer has appealed to the communication networks in the country to assist the the Fire Service to offer prompt responses to fire outbreaks.

“The communications industry must assist the Fire Service because their activities evolve around power and electronics which are all fire prone”, he stressed.

Dr. Gaisie made the call in Accra on Wednesday, when the Service received four sets of phones from MTN Ghana, the telecommunication company, to facilitate more access to the national emergency number, 192.

He noted that elswhere the world over, communication agencies assist such emergency service providers as the Fire Service, to respond to emergencies and appealed to MTN and the other service providers to provide more phone sets for the GNFS in its 13 official regions.

He also urged the networks to sponsor the Fire Safety Week celebration, slated for March this year.

Mrs Eleanor Sarpong, Senior Manager of Regulatory Affairs, MTN Ghana, recognised the GNFS for its responses to emergencies, especially fire outbreaks, and indicated that the donation was to complement its future responses to them.
