Fireman's Prayer

When I am called to duty God wherever flames may rage Give me the strength to save some life whatever be its age help me embrace a little child Before it is too late or save an older person from the horror of the fate. Enable me to be alert and Hear the weakest shout and quickly and efficiently to put the fire out. I want to fulfil my calling and to give the best in me to guard my every neighbour and protect his property and if according to your will I have to lose my life please bless with your protecting hands my children and my wife. Amen.

NFS / ADM/069 VOL. V

8TH JULY, 2009



It has come to the notice of Management of the Ghana National Fire   Service that users of Vehicles and certain individuals have taken advantage of the recent shortage of fuel in some parts of the country and are buying and keeping petrol in plastic containers in their homes.

Management wishes to caution that such practices are dangerous since petrol is highly flammable and could endanger the lives of people when the fuel comes in contact with naked fire as a result of improper storage.

The Ghana National Fire Service wishes to advise the general public, Vehicle users and speculators alike to help the Service by desisting from this act, since it could lead to fire outbreaks in their homes with its resultant loss of life and property.

The Public is reminded to immediately contact the Ghana National Fire Service on emergency 192 or 021 – 772446 in the event of any fire outbreak for assistance.

24TH APRIL, 2009


Reference is made to a news article which appeared on page 20 of the Wednesday April 22nd 2009 edition of the Daily Graphic with the above caption. This is to clarify certain facts that the last paragraph of the report seem to have created as though Fire Service as an organisation sells Fire Eextinguishers.

The said paragraph reads ‘Mr. Opoku said in order to make the gadget more accessible to motorist to ensure the safety of live and property on the roads, is outfit had provided the Koforidua Office of the DVLA with Fire Extinguishers to be sold to drivers at subsidised prices but some of the drivers had declined to buy them.’

The Regional Command wishes to state that the last paragraph as captured above does not carry a true reflection of what ACFO Opoku said at the launch.

It must be noted that Act 537, Ghana National Fire Service Act and the LI 1724, Fire Precautions (Premises) Regulations of 2003 does not permit the Service to sell Fire Extinguishers.  However the Service is mandated to recommend and offer advise on the purchase of such Fire fighting Equipment.

The fact under this circumstance is that, the extinguishers were supplied after a stakeholders meeting which included the drivers as well.  It was at the said meeting that CHARKOJOS FIRE WORKS LIMITED was recommended for the supply of Fire Extinguishers to drivers on credit basis.

It was therefore CHARKOJOS FIRE WORKS LIMITED which supplied the Fire Extinguishers and not Fire Service as the publication seems to create.

This reaction is to put to rest the misconception created as if the Ghana National Fire Service sells Fire Extinguishers.Text Box: ISHMAEL MacCARTHY (DO III)
