Ashanti REGSEC orders 24-hour surveillance to curb market fires

At least two market fires have been recorded in the capital early this month with items running into several millions of cedis

The Ashanti Regional Security Council (REGSEC) has ordered 24-hour surveillance in markets and other regional installations.

This is to enable the Ghana National Fire Service to closely monitor the activities of market men and women to avert any fire outbreaks, as the harmattan strikes.

Ashanti Regional Minister Simon Osei-Mensah disclosed this at a meeting organised by the Regional Coordinating Council (RCC) on Thursday (21 December).

At least two market fires have been recorded in the capital early this month with items running into several millions of cedis. The Regional Minister expects all MMDCEs to provide spaces for the fire service to operate.

“The advent of the harmattan is noted for its attendant fire outbreaks. The collaboration between the National Commission for Civic Education, the Information Services Department and the Ghana National Fire Service to educate our people on best preventive, as well as fire-preventing measures to save lives and properties is very critical.

“Let us pay critical attention to our markets and national installations since they could be targets for fires. In this regard I have directed all Assemblies to make available spaces for the fire service to ensure that the markets are monitored day and night”, Osei-Mensah stated.

“Defaulting Assemblies will explain to the Council why the default for necessary action”, he warned.

The meeting was to take stock of its activities within the year and also to chart the way forward for the following.
