Chief Fire Officer (CFO) Dr. Albert Brown Gaisie disclosed on Monday, January 5 that the service has recorded 110 cases of fire outbreak just four days into the New Year.

The Ghana National Fire Service has attributed the 110 fire outbreak cases to the sheer neglect of safety measures by institutions, industries and communities.

 “As an institution responsible for management of undesired fire in this country by law, we will not sit down to allow these things to continue like that,” said CFO Gaisie.

 “The task force from [Monday] is going to go round to ensure and advice [people] about the usage of inferior, sub-standard extinguishers.”

“Some of the industries do not conform to our safety standards,” he stated, “and in spite of the fact that when these fires occur they have serious consequential effects on our operational costs, it also has serious effect on our financial and logistical base.”  He lamented.

Properties affected included Dome Central Market, a residence in Osu and Melcom warehouse among other facilities into 2015.
