They are Assistant Chief Fire Officer (ACFO) Gilford Tetteh Adams who is currently on retirement and ACFO Julius Kuunour who has been transferred to the National Headquarters as Acting Director in charge of Human Resource and Training.
ACFO Gilford Tetteh Adams served the GNFS for 38 years and was the Regional Fire Commander from November 2009 to September 2014, while ACFO Kuunour took over the Command from October, 2014 to January this year.
The Chief Fire Officer, Dr. Albert Brown-Gaisie, in a speech read on his behalf noted that they had been a source of motivation and inspiration to their fellow commanders, as well as officers and men who served under them.
He thanked them, describing their performances as “characteristically outstanding” to both the GNFS and the nation at large.
Dr. Brown-Gaisie said their tenure of office witnessed many achievements from which others should be inspired as they “distinguished themselves with diligence”.
The Chief Fire Officer said they would be remembered for their good management skills, trustworthiness and dedication to duty and advised others to follow their footsteps.
He wished ACFO Adams the best in his future endeavours while expecting ACFO Kuunour to continue with his dedicated service and hard work exhibited over the years.
They both expressed appreciation to the Chief Fire Officer and the GNFS for giving them the opportunity to contribute to the growth of the Service and promised to offer their advise whenever they are called upon.
ACFO Adams said it saddens him whenever negative reportage was made about the GNFS in the media and therefore called on the personnel to give off their best and also take advantage of every learning opportunity to make the Service the best.
The two were presented with a citation and a present by the Tema Regional Command as show of appreciation.
