Ghana National Fire Service in huge debt to fuel stations

The Ghana National Fire Service is feared to be facing severe challenges with the purchase of fuel to man its emergency vehicles in the Ashanti Region and other regional capitals - a development which if feared to be having a negative toll on their ability to fight fire emergencies.

Meedia reports do indicate that most, if not all of the emergency vehicles in the Ashanti Region have been grounded due to the huge debts owed fuel stations across the country - a development which has seen the public relations officer of the Ghana National Fire Service, Osarfo Afum confirms.

What this means is that the capacity of the Ghana National Fire Service to douse flames remains highly slim especially when the nation has over the past few months been experiencing severe spreads of fire outbreaks. In the meantime, the general public is been admonished to comply by basic fire safety tips with offices and large organisations charged to have fire extinguishers just for safety keeps.
