The Public Relation and Complaint Committed (PRCC) of the Adentan Municipal Assembly has held a sensitization program in collaboration with the Ghana Fire Service to educate the market women in Adentan Shopping Mall and Ogbojo market on how to prevent domestic fire outbreaks on Monday 19th of December, 2022.
This was part of the PRCC’s mandate to sensitize members of the public on activities of the Assembly as well as to interact with the market women and also create a platform for them to ask the fire officers questions on domestic fire prevention during this dry and festive season.
DOII Gifty Agyeiwa Akai-Nettey from the Adentan Municipal station led the education team to sensitize the women. She said there are three components that boost fire burning thus heat, oxygen and fuel. These things according to her are found in our surroundings hence being cautious in handling them will help prevent fire outbreaks in the community.
Mrs.Akai- Nettey further explained the importance of having fire extinguishers and smoke detectors at home as first aid fire detecting and prevention tools and urged the women to make it a point to get some for their various homes.
“Women we buy cloths and do our hair all the time but when fire officers come around and ask us to buy fire extinguishers and smoke detectors to protect our own lives, we feel reluctant. These things are very important as fire first aids to alert and protect us from any threat in regards to domestic fire outbreaks in our homes”, she said.
However, the Chairman of the PRCC of the Assembly Honorable Joseph Odai Boye through his representative Honorable Vivian Bosompem thanked the women for taking time of their busy schedules to be a part of the program and advised them to always make themselves available for such sensitizations for their own benefit.
