An outreach programme embarked on by the GNFS at the Kaneshie Market was held to sensitise the market women to always keep the market safe.

A Group Officer with the Fire Education Department of the GNFS, Mrs Genevieve Nana Derby, urged the market women to rearrange items in their shops periodically in order to create convenient access ways in the market.

She asked them to be more careful with fire especially in the harmattan season and desist from burning refuse close to stalls and sheds.

She said the dry winds of the harmattan make it easier for fires to break out and that the slightest spark could lead to an inferno in the market.

Madam Agnes Bentil, a trader at the market said she had received complaints from victims of fire disasters in other markets, who were her friends, that when the fires did occur the fire engines that appeared on the scene did not have water in them and wondered why that was so.

Mrs Derby denied the assertion. She said fire engines were always refilled with water after use before they were returned to the fire station.

“No fire engine goes out on an empty tank and comes back on an empty tank,” she said.

She assured the management and traders that an instance of an empty fire engine appearing on the scene in the event of a fire outbreak at the market would not occur.
