Ban construction of high rise buildings - Ghana Fire Service petitions Parliament

Parliament has been petitioned by the Ghana National Fire Service to pass law preventing the construction of high rise buildings in the country arguing that such buildings make it difficult to put out fire outbreaks.

Chief Fire Officer, Dr. Albert Brown-Gaisie has thus argued that the Ghana National Fire Service does not have the requisite equipment to putting out fires from such buildings should there be an incidence of an outbreak.

Meanwhile, spokesperson of the Ghana National Fire Service, Prince Billy Anaglatey has argued that the calls for a ban on high rise buildings has been misconstrued by the public. Speaking on the matter, Prince Billy Anaglatey argued that some of those buildings fail to ensure that certain facilities are fixed in the design to make firefighting easier adding that they continue to flout firefighting measures and that is what the fire officer was talking about.
